Friday afternoon was all about the Bike Drop Off are the transition area. The tension was a little heightened compared to the past few days, but laughs and smiles were still abundant as every athlete made his or her way through to drop off bikes and race gear. While product companies lined the sidewalks tallying the most popular gear–from bikes to nutrition–a lot of the pros shared their final thoughts on Twitter….
