The biggest challenge in my opinion is logistics, given the large separation for T1 and T2. Give yourself plenty of time for bike check-in the previous day as the drive to T1 can have some traffic. Last year I stayed near T1 and got dropped off in the morning but I heard that the shuttle in the morning from T2->T1 was smooth as well.
I've heard rumblings that the course may change this year too, and the date was moved from May to July (expect the heat to be more of a factor) so my experience may not be as relevant.
