    Not sure why this had to be made about white males. The video itself was not offensive, did not say anything about white male privilige, what ever that is.

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    What are you going to do about it. Drafting has been there for ever. Every time the huge packs late 90's at forster get brought up all the, it never happened in my day types, say I was there we never drafted. People draft, some people don't. Make a choice live with it. This vigilante crap should stop though. Let the TO and ref do their job. Report to them if you want. A lot of people claiming drafting don't quite get the rule or the dynamic nature of drafting. I have not had a drafting penalty, never wheel sucked, at times I have inadvertently drafted and could have been penalised. A guy at Shepparton, thought I was drafting, yelled at me in the race and confronted me after the race. I thanked him for his feedback. He kept going, I asked him what he wanted, thanked him again and walked away.

    The tri-industry is not going draft legal, look at all the investment into tri bikes and aero. The rules are based on discrete values but the reality is it is a continuously varying dynamic. But its the best we have. What we need are more people willing to be TO, hopefully people who have raced a lot. The people who cheat, that is intentionally sit on a wheel and work in packs will do it anyway, they don't care about their impact (remember they are all BOP and MOP anyway as the FOP people are all awesome 😀) Good TO who engage with athletes, talk and coach people out of making mistakes and early on giving direction to those pushing the limits to drop back. Early on its messy, once they are out in the open ping away. One of the biggest issues with drafting is people simply unwilling to understand that the rule works when you drop back when passed. Do that and 90% of the problems go away. If we went back to the 7 metre rule we would have less problems with people going for a pass and failing which is another issue. Blocking, need to get onto that hard as blockers stop the pass and drop back dynamic. Its a dynamic thing so just because you drop back one bike does not mean you have to keep dropping. Dropping in, its your problem, drop back or don't get passed

    Yes, yes, when the front wheel passes mine, snap I''ll drop back until then I'm doing my thing. Almost time for the dropping in posts to start.

    the 5 and 7 were good. 12 metres makes it hard for people to complete passes leading to all sorts of problems
