Garmin triathlete exonerated from race DQ list thanks to his Edge


Slick road conditions caused prudent Jackson County Triathlon race officials to call for a mandatory dismount on a wooden bridge during the bike portion of the race. Race volunteers at the bridge site were there to caution riders and note bib numbers for any riders who didn’t heed the rules. A certain Garmin athlete who completed the long course made sure to stop and walk his bike over the slippery bridge both times in his 24-mile bike course. Later, when he checked the posted race results, he saw his name on the DQ list.

He imported his race history from his Edge 305 to Garmin Training Center™ software. The history detail clearly showed the speed drop as he crossed the bridge both times (click on images to see full screen). He sent the screen grabs to race officials as proof that he’d followed the rules. End result: his name was put back in the race result standings. Sweet justice for an athlete who’d trained hard and had the right equipment.
