The TA stab was a bit of a joke going off what was said at the Carbo dinner (hadd to be there joke)
Secondly, the drafting that was allowed by 90% of TO's was about the 8m mark from which I observed throughout the day (in amazement) especially after the old 12m foot stamp at the carbo dinner but continued to stay legal in my opinion. I even got a thumbs up from one as I dropped back to about 10m. Closer than the incident in which I got pinned.
How do expect all TO's to interpret identical? The same way we do, by the rules. Making a call from 300m away about the distance I dropped back was pretty harsh. I'm not pissed because I got penalised and others didn't, I was pissed because I got penailised unfairly imo.
What do you expect the TO's to do during a race? Be consistent.
What is your preferred method to stop drafters, particularly groups as you mentioned you were in? I wasn't in a group, I rode straight through them and pushed on because they were all hiding from the wind like little girlie men haha
Anyways mate, I put that all behind me and had a great run so am happy. But was pretty pissed at the time.
