When I go and register for a triathlon, I am an eligible to register in the Clydesdale division. If I don't I would be put into the typical age divisions.
The question becomes.....which division to race in?
Lets take a look at what a Clydesdale is first.......
Clydesdale definition = a Scottish bread of strong, hardy draft horses. OR a heavy powerful breed of horse.
I guess that means I am a heavy powerful triathlon athlete?
To qualify for this division you must be a male over 200 lbs, regardless of height. This seems odd to me for several reasons. A guy that is 5'6" tall that is over 200 lbs is overweight, but what about a guy like me that is 6'5" tall......is that overweight? If I weighed the average weight of a triathlon athlete at 165 lbs....I would have a 2% body fat composition and NO muscle, but a guy that is 5'6" would be ripped with muscle!
With all that said.....which division so I register for?
