March 30, 2021 - My first race in Fort Lauderdale. There was a very large field so good tune up for Nationals. The bike course was incredibly crowded which made it very difficult to pass other competitors on the course. I was penalized 2:00 for passing on the right but I had no choice when trying to move through the course. Despite the penalty I was able to hold on for the overall win. Fast group of racers but not sure if I will do this one if the venue stays the same as the Duathletes have to navigate around too many bikers on the tight course.
