Yeah, it was rough. I was able to get first place, but luckily my thumb didn't hurt too bad.

Yeah, that wasn't necessary R*!

My first time I failed at 21 minutes. Imagine that fun! I hit a pedestrian and fell of my bike. Then he wanted to beat me up so he wouldn't let me get back on and leave. I tried to fight him but the game wouldn't let me. He killed me, I failed, and 21 minutes wasted. Good times!

This event caught me by surprise. I was 1st after the swimming, but fell 3 times while biking and thought I was screwed. Luckily the game adjusted its AI performance to mine and I managed to place 1st. I had to switch between my thumb and fingers with all that pounding. Perhaps, a better control scheme should have been implemented. As it is now, that marathon is ridiculously stupid all due to the sprint implementation chosen by Rockstar.

I'm amazed that I ended up in 1st on that race... Considering a pedestrian kept pulling me off my bike at one point for no reason (I crashed into a mailbox). The mashing A was pretty bad, but it was more boring than anything.

They took the realism of the triathlon to another level. I felt like I completed a triathlon after that.

I started the triathlon and figured out this was the half hour. I immediately quit. My thumb needs some training before I attempt that.

Yeah the swimming part was easy, but it was the biking part that killed me.

After about 20 mins of heavy button mashing I thought I'd take a nice shortcut with my bike. Ended up in a fenced yard without an exit.

This challenge is still waiting for me. Not because it's hard but because I kept thinking "why the fuck am I doing this?"

Really? For me, the AI on the cycling section was dumb as fuck. I kept watching one or two contestants pass me...only for them to cycle right into the guard rail or a lamp post and fall off their bike

Wow, 28 minutes is over the top.

Is this Triathlon essential towards the 100% Game Completion Achievement? If it isn't I'll give it a miss and save breaking another Controller.

Hated the third triathlon, especially the part with the bike riders passing me even though I had unlimited stamina and I was mashing the A button like crazy.

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.

I was 1st at the very end and somehow someone passed me, was sure I got first but the final screen said 2/8...hell I'm lucky I got that I guess after falling twice on the bike (good thing I ran into the top 5 when I was getting to the end..put me back at 1 for the running). This is one gold I can do without.

almost posted a thread on this the other day when I did it, it was so brutal, once I realized the swim was across the lake I knew R* was about to take the triathlon to a whole knew level and actually make it a real physical contest.

I was going to try and do it without pausing but around 23 mins of tapping as fast as I could go, I literally had to take a break. But its cool that they did that, had no idea how fast those triathlons got out of hand. first one was like 8 mins, second 12 mins, third almost 30?! lol was still fun though.

Thank God I got first, would never want to do that again.

edit: and oh I shit my pants when I fell off my bike at the very end of the bike portion, thought I would lose it all just because of that 24 mins in!

This event is why I'm happy I have a turbo controller, was raging after 26 minutes into the race, I saw hold Y to return to checkpoint. I did but he got off the bike and I forfeited the race

Whoa! I just finished #2 yesterday and passed by #3 couple of times on and off mission, but I had a bad feeling about it and I guess this was it. no way I am gonna waste 30mins of my life doing this shit as it is pretty pointless. So much more fun stuff you can do in that time=D

Had to try this three times. First time I failed at 15 minutes because I tried to put my lights on on the bike - stupid, I know. Then second time I hit a pedestrian at 23 minutes and failed. Third time I did it. So frustrating.

I was glad I did this first try. Didn't lose 1st place once. It was easy, but annoying to tap A over and over lol

WTF!? I was hoping absurd amounts of button mashing would end with KIFFLOM! Thankfully gold is not required! (Please correct me if gold is required for any specific reason.)
