What are you wearing for the swim? Wetsuit, swimskin or nothing....

What are wheels on the bike, disc rear or regular deep section aero wheels?

Water will be warm with recent heatwave. Im planning on swim skin. Bike course is relatively flat so a disc would be the choice.

If they are allowed, I wear it. I know some people over heat. I use De Soto speed tube rather than bibs.

As far as wetsuits go, what is the dropoff in pace/100y in a farmer john wetsuit from a full wetsuit? I might borrow the former from a friend if it's a negligible deficit.

just found this from 06 but there's nothing better than the anecdotal within so anything recent is appreciated.

Hey Guys ... some facts from here in Sonoma County and details on the swim

Water: 3 days ago it was 80 degrees ... this morning it was just below 72
* Water temp can have large flux based on weather and any extra releases of water from upstream lakes ... it will likely be 70 tomorrow morning
--- If we have cooler days w/ marine layer coming over night in the days leading up to the race the water temp will stay down ... remember the water is always moving and fresh water continues to flow. IF we have another hot stretch w/ no marine layer and not cooling down over night the temps stay higher BUT still drop 3-5 degrees every night

Wheels & Course ... this comes up every year BUT ride the most aero stuff you can handle ... wind for the 70.3 tends to be a non - issue (not the case for Full Vineman) ... "flat" is a relative word so it will

Right now the forecast for the coming week is slightly below normal temps (low 80's) with a warming trend beginning Saturday ... that said two days ago the forecast was very different so it's likely to change now. We go in cycles here SO cool now means an inevitable warm up to above normal temps. BTW ... if you are looking at weather forecasts use the town of Windsor, it is warmer there than if you compare to Santa Rosa

Best of Luck to Everyone!
