What is a Non-Drafting Triathlon?
Non-drafting triathlon is the “normal” triathlon that you see across the country and around the world. The main rule that makes it “non-drafting” is that on the bike, the riders are not allowed to get within 10 meters of the bike in front of them, hence the “drafting” behind another bike.
Major Differences between non-drafting and draft legal events:
Any type of bike frame, “road” (left) or “time trial” (right) is allowed in a non-drafting.
It is highly recommended that all athletes become comfortable with non-drafting triathlons before attempting to enter a draft legal event. If you have any further questions, please contact Coach Ryan!
