The Night Before

It is the night before the Ironman 70.3 World Championships here in Clearwater ,Florida. Everything is done. We checked in the bike today, dropped off our gear bags and are set. Everything did not go so smoothly. While droppung off the bike and letting some air out of the tires because it is not a good idea to leave a bike to sit in the sun with fully inflated tires. As he let som air out of the front tire Devon noticed a crack in one of the carbon blades. This could have been disasterous if the wheel had failed tomorrow during the race at speeds over 65 km/hr. Luckily they have a wheel rental service and we rented a Zipp 808 carbon front wheel, so all is well. Nothing left to do but eat dinner amd get some sleep. I hear it is supposed to be a beautiful day in Clearwater tomorrow. I hope the water is calm and the sun is out.
