Which bike for ITU? Shiv or Scott Foil?

I’ll be doing an ITU, draft legal, completely flat, triathlon in February. It olympic distance, 40 km cycle and 10 km run. My question is if I should be using my road bike and get higher power and better handling and draft OR should I be using my Specialized Shiv which is super aero? The route is completely flat. I should be getting out of the water with the first 1/3 of the field. Cycling is my strong suit (3,7 w/kg on TT) and running is definitely my weak point. Any suggestions would be appreciated as | would like to train with the correct bike. Does anyone know what the pros are using for these events?

If it’s draft legal, the Shiv won’t be permitted will it? That should make the decision easy.

Scott Foil. If you are in a pack, you will need all the control you can get
