For the second year in a row, the eyes of global triathlon were on Yorkshire for a weekend, and once again we turned out in force to welcome the world to our town. I had a terrific couple of days supporting friends and teammates.
I saw five “handlebar dismounts” in the forty five minutes I was standing there. The fatal combination is decelerating hard with your weight too far forward. A cyclist would approach the line with too much speed, swing their leg over in preparation, then realise they were going way too fast to start running.
