A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.
Done my first sprint triathlon in Chateau de Chantilly, which was a blast, in spite of miserable weather.
Now, having done a huge number of 4 triathlons altogether - one super sprint, one sprint, one cross and one half ironman - and having been a member of ExpaTRIes Triathlon Club Paris twice already, I proudly classify myself as a triathlete, even though I am not currently planning to participate in anything else in a foreseeable future.
I love cycling, I really like running (especially trail running), but combining them both with swimming in a competitive manner doesn't really speak to me too much.

Proud finisher of my first half ironman - Challenge Paguera-Mallorca.
Cycling on roads doesn't prepare in any way for an off-road experience of riding through fields full of mud, and running on a sandy beach.
