  1. Hand back your Pro Card

    More money in the pro prize purse will improve the quality of the pro field as more AG give up day jobs to give it a go. Don't think it is a problem having some AG who are good enough to go pro but don't and a few Pros who for race entry economy or living the dream are getting beaten by those AG. It would be good if pro fields were as deep as possible bringing more interest and sponsorship to the pro race. AG is the focus for WTC and they really pay for the sport along with product sponsors, with the pro race event promotion material (i hour TV packages). Having an open amateur category won't change much, a few under 50's will win an AG category, all the same people will get kona slots. WTC built business through AG focussed IM and 70.3 races. Maybe they could do more for the pros and try to make a product to sell for pay tv, there is so much rubbish there surely a decent series of two IM plus 70.3 over the year culminating in the kona WC round could sell. But it could work against the AG business model.

In that top 20 in 2014 it is mainly pros with a few very good AG. There are pros who are on the way down like in any sport. They will eventually self select out and AG will eventually become pros. There will always be some people who are faster AG and slower pros. Don't think it reduces any persons experience of the sport. Think it is fine the way it is and for us AG doing our thing I quite like seeing fast AG, fast pros competing with each other.
  3. What gets on my quince....

    Impatient people on escalators who get upset about not being able to walk past me when I have two kids and few bags of groceries .
  4. The Politics Thread

    Section 44 is plain and simple. Renounce citizenship of another country to be eligible to enter OUR parliament. Take all reasonable steps (prior to nominating as a candidate) to ensure that you meet the requirements under 44. Will gallagher be okay
  5. Clothing... or lack of!

    Would a teenager care what an almost forty year old does.

  7. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    Tough crowd. Shark is sighted, people with experience assess risk of loss of life and make a tough but sensible call and they are called out on it.
  8. World Cup Draw

    The socceroos were pish but they got through. midfielders who stand square passing sideways and backwards hoping to bore the opposition with ange's dream of tika takka. Main difference is barca and Spain have people who move off the ball and move forwards. Before people decided to call it tikka takka there was a team call Liverpool who played pass and move. And there was Alan Hansen possiblly sexier than Christina Keneally

  11. Challenge Shep - Who is racing?

    Life, different choices. Time to focus though, it's Kona or move to Scotland and do Edinburgh 70.3
  12. Challenge Shep - Who is racing?

    been back to your side of the world for a bit and gone running
  13. Challenge Shep - Who is racing?

    They were not all at 20, in most cases at least 15. They at least looked committed to staying reasonably spaced. When the distance was closer it was easier to judge. Appreciate this does not make it any easier for those who were disadvantaged by it. Did not see anyone in the box. There were some AG who on their own were not making 30 Kmh but ended up with 34 Km h bike splits.
  14. Meat and Water Diet Study

    Definitely get more action after eating steak
  15. Canberra Cycling Clubs

    Bumping this back up as it is time to go back for the every two year have a go at crit racing. This generally ends badly as I do it badly, do amazing amounts of work to place right at the back and then swear off it forever. If I remember any rule is it: follow wheel in front and don't overlap it rule 2 don't overtake on the inside?
