the triathlon season doesn't even start until well into June. There's a few du's prior to that, maybe as early as mid-May.

I asked this because our season in the "Vancouver-area" starts in early March...

We have lots of races pre-june!

(must be something crazy with those canadians)

Also, that's talking from the perspective of some one who hasn't raced multi-sport in several years. There weren't any indoor races (using a pool) at the time in the area, so that may be a big factor. Well, there was ONE race, but it was of a completely different format (10 minutes each on a concept 2 ergometer, computrainer, and treadmill at 5% grade, with 5 minute "transitions" between). There were duathlons that started in March, and hit heavier in April, but water temps int he lakes made open water tri's a dicey thing until June.
