DRAFT LEGAL RACING

For ADVANCED TRIATHLETES
AGES 13 – 19
Triathletes interested in racing in the USAT Development Series draft-legal waves, under our USAT High Performance Team, may consult with our coaching team for triathlete readiness & endorsement.

Draft-legal racing is a high-intensity, competitive racing format for advanced triathletes. Races start with open-water swim segments (i.e., lakes or ponds) in a group-start format. Athletes are allowed to draft off other athletes during the swim and bike segments of the race. During the bike segment, athletes ride wheel-on-wheel, drafting one-another, and often forming “peloton” groups on the fly during the race. Athletes take turns rotating through the “pull” position of the peloton, using a variety of communication signals and terms, collectively accelerating the speed of the group. It’s imperative that athletes wanting to enter draft-legal races have mastered the proper skills to race safely. Draft-legal races follow a lap-out rule.

Interested triathletes should sign up for the desired Intermediate/Advanced Competition squad session(s) and then schedule a conversation with our coaching team. Currently, we do not offer a separate practice schedule for draft-legal triathletes. Draft-legal racing skills are worked into the practices for identified triathletes.

13yo -19yo. Road bike and clip-in cycling shoes required. Bike must have large and small front chainrings, working brakes and greased chain. Athlete must be able to swim 100yd (4 laps) continuously and unassisted.

Each athlete must have an active USAT Youth Membership.
