【IRONMAN 鐵人小教室】甚麼? 我跟車了?! What? I Enter the Drafting Zone?!

甚麼? 我跟車了?!  鐵人小教室教你如何知道自己是否進入了跟車區或是被別人跟車了!

所謂的”跟車區”指的是你的前輪前緣和跟在你後方選手的前輪前緣的12公尺內(約6個車身),一旦進入此距離內即表示後方選手已經入了跟車區,倘若他在此跟車區滯留超過25秒,並無超車也沒有要遠離此區的意思,那麼他就違反了”跟車罰則”。鐵人三項是講求獨自完賽的運動項目,倚賴著前方減低風阻的”跟車”行為是不被允許的,這不是真鐵人的行為,所以了解規則也是幫助自己在賽場上的好表現喔!

What? I enter the drafting zone?! Do you know if you have entered drafting zone or if you are drafted by other triathletes?

The drafting zone is 12 meters long, measured from the leading edge of the front wheel and extending towards the back of the bike (6 bike lengths of clear space between bikes). If an athlete enters the drafting zone of another athlete more than 25 seconds and does not try to pass and continuously progress through the drafting zone, he/she will be called for a penalty. The objective of a triathlon is to overcome enormous force on the athlete his own, drafting another cyclist during a triathlon is outright illegal. So, let’s focus on how we can avoid drafting and be the true IRONMAN!
