Just sorting out my duathlon schedule for the year and was wondering if I can use my TT bike (with gear levers protruding at the end of the aero bars) in duathlons, or does it depend upon whether it's a drafting or non-drafting event etc. I remember reading somewhere that for tris the aero bars needed to be closed to prevent any damage to fellow competitors in the event of a collision, or something like that!
Is the policy for all duathlons/triathlons, or on a per event basis? If the latter, is it simply a matter of contacting the event's organisers, or is there some secret code I should look out for in the event description?
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
