  2. Training volume when not signed up to anything

    And the opportunity to use ur work time as some training time. Great outcome!
  3. Training volume when not signed up to anything

    Thats a heck of a lot. Not sure many here could do that with work and family. How do u manage work hours, sleep, recovery etc? And the mental side of that level of commitment with no event goal?
  4. ATEC Expo Cancelled

    With so many events now, and all the individual expos at those, plus all the onine and social media exposure, i suppose the demand side has now shifted from one "big" expo of the same stuff. Pity for the organisers
  5. Why do you/don't you wear Hoka's?

  8. WC Selection Races Distribution, Fair?

    Nice. Half of my leave will be unpaid as I've only been in a new job a few months. The other half is using the small amount of annual leave I have accrued.

    Yep. Guess I wasn't as lucky as you. Then again, I didn't fly. All by bus. Couldn't afford to go to games o/s. Picked the wrong sports too I spose. Sailing was also a pricey one to rep at. Oh well.

    there's weight classes in a lot of things - like boxing, wrestling, weightlifting etc. Similar.

    The opportunity. If I was good enough to expect to be paid (cash or inkind) for my efforts I'd be a pro. It's amateur sport. My local/state etc hockey association never gave me anything when I played and represented them. Or my national sailing association. I still paid all my associated costs then too.

    So from my perspective, going through the qualifying races and getting a spot for Rotterdam (no matter how pointless you think it is). I paid my TA membership - which I would have anyway. I paid race rego to the small companies that ran the races I did. Not TA directly. In addition to the WC race entry, I paid a team supplement which goes towards TA support over there - mechanic, doctor, insurance etc. approx. $400. I had to buy the race uniform - not from TA, and standards/rules not set by TA. So not TA directly. Not sure how else TA is milking me as a cash cow? Is it because you have to be a TA member to go?
  13. WC Selection Races Distribution, Fair?

    Can u elaborate a bit on this? Like how much and from whom, makes it a cash cow for TA?
  14. WC Selection Races Distribution, Fair?

  15. WC Selection Races Distribution, Fair?
