How do I approach T2?

When approaching the dismount line you will need to remove your feet from your bike shoes and put them on top of the shoes. Do this in a manner similar to the way you put them on (i.e. one at a time so you do not lose too much speed at once). You will then ride with your feet on top of the shoes until you are within 10 meters of the dismount line, at which point you will stand up and swing one leg over your saddle bringing your foot to rest behind your other foot (which is still on top of the shoe). You will coast in this position until you reach the dismount line where you will step down and start running with your bike towards your transition spot. Hook your handlebars over the bar, put your run shoes on, and then take your helmet off.
