The course follows the same layout as it returns. Transition 1 is located in the parking lot that starts at the boat ramp and goes north. *Cut-Off Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes after final wave start BIKE (56 miles) - *ATTENTION ALL ATHLETES: Due to the heightened security in and around Camp Pendleton Base in Oceanside, no pre-riding of the course will be allowed.
