At first 2 triathlons I was bitchin they are way too easy, at this one - we got extremely long, boring and kinda hard triathlon, terrible 28 minutes wasted! (my time was 28min:00sec:--)

Well, I only now have the collectibles to go for (stuntjumps, under the bridge, letter scraps and ufo parts = 200 boring collectibles, gonna take some time...)

Canīt wait for GTA: Online, think it will be much better than the SP part of the game...

I am doing it now, having a rest after the swimming one, then another rest after cycling.

18 mins in now on cycling, have to stop for a rest, having tingles in my hands!!

Fuck sake, just got forfeited for killing someone along the beach, fucking spectators!!

Second attempt finally done it, didn't bother tapping A as fast this time as I knew the cycling must be programmed for them to overtake you then you overtake them. The running straight after cycling seemed slow lol.

I got nervous because i could not overtake anyone on the swimming session, then the bike i ran towards was grabbed by someone and i had to run to the furthest bike. Was able to pass most ppl during that section and then easily finished first through the running. I noticed it made no difference if i was mashing the a button like a crazy person or just casually tapping it continuously.

This triathlon took me by surprise, both of the others only took about 5 min. 28 Min later finally cross the finish line. Did anyone else take a break after each event (swimming & cycling)?

Just finished this one in 25:52 and got a sodding silver! Some knob jockey came from nowhere and beat me on the line!

Did it on my second attempt. I was pretty much dead last in the swimming part and in 1st/2nd/3rd throughout the biking part. It wasn't until I got to running that I dominated to 1st place.

I would recommend when you get to the beach during the bike section that you take extra precaution and slow down when going around corners.

Completed it with Michael, would have to buy one of those controllers with a turbo button before even thinking of trying it for a second time with a different character.

Why do it a second time?

Was already not looking forward to this (being in call with my mate while he did it was enough to put me off) and reading this thread hasn't changed my mind! I just know I have to do it at some point but I'm still putting it off for now!

They should really max out your stamina for finishing the 3rd triathlon. I barely finished the swimming in 1st place then jumped on my bike and quickly hit the d pad twice to the right to turn on the headlight

,.,oops

it quit me out of the event and I had to redo the ten minutes of swimming. Again I barely finished first using almost all my stamina. THen a weird thing happened, for the bike and running, I had max stamina which would never go down. But even with maxed stamina and spamming the A button, I couldn't do better than 3rd or 4th place in the cycling. The guy in 1st was WAY ahead and luckily the other guy near me crashed into a pedestrian. yay!

I finally catch up to the first bike at the very end and quickly take off running, leaving a HUGE gap of them behind me for some reason (maybe the maxed stamina?) and luckily finish 1st. Glad to never do it again.

As much as I hated it, it reminded me of the Endurance races of Forza and it made you feel the pain along with your runner in some ways. I liked it

What i did was tap A for 5 or 6 minutes pause the game, go do something else, come back tap some more, pause it again, tap some more. It took a lot longer than 28 minutes but at least I wasn't irritated and didn't have a dead hand.

I did something similar to lights on a bike, i tried to reload my bike after a crash... In this at the very least that dam button should be HOLD not PRESS >< lol

Whats actually worse is i did it twice both on the biking stage so 10+ mins in, screw you muscle memory

Have done, swimming they catch up a bit, biking they somehow get nitro, what the fuck that is i dont know but they slow down again and its easy to keep first (no one crashed in mine till the very end, i think the guy might of died too, he hit a truck and it never stopped even after lol), but the running part, you just hammer A and as long as you have max stam you just lose them in seconds. Actually can't see how you get anything but first in these, running is silly once you have the infinite stam.

This whole thing was a joke. The only time i was in 1st place was in the last 30 seconds. Is it me or did them bike riders keep having nitrous ?

*I have actually damaged the "A" button on a 4 week old genuine slim controller

I have to press it 2 maybe 3 times for it to register now, from smashing the "A" button in general in this whole game. Lucky I had a spare.

I had a complete dumb ass attack the first time I attempted this. I had just finished the swimming part. Got onto the bike, and not even 15 seconds later, for whatever reason, I saw the light on the bike and was like 'Hey. Light. Let's see if I can turn it off!' As I was spamming the , before I knew what happened, I exited the race.

Gave in and decided to attack it like 30 minutes later and finished it. Though I do agree it was a little odd that the random biker would pass you, then wipe out moments later.

I was tapping the a button for 20 minutes, I was driving the bike and I reached the beach. But there was a sharp turn to the right. R* has the guts to put spectators in that sharp turn. So I ran 1 over with my bike > I had to do that all over again.

Second try, got it

How did you guys stay in first the whole time? I just tried this earlier and the AI was smoking my A$$. I have stamina maxed out. I was struggling to just stay in 3rd, and the 1st place player was like literally 2-3 check points ahead of me at all times, and some how the AI would just randomly fly past me. I did not crash into anything, didnt fall, didnt stop running, or anything.. I eventually quit around the 15 min mark once I knew I was not going to win.

I lost first place at the very last second but I didn't really care I was just glad to complete it in the medal places. This event can do legitimate damage to your controller.

Red face Hated it.

I finally finished this triathlon after a failure the first time.

First time mishaps:
-15:30: Hit a street sign and fell of my bike.
-18:20: Hit a guardrail and went over face first.
-21:40: Hit a street lamp and died due to brain cave-in.

Despite this, i tried again (at the expense of my thumbs) and finished with first.
