I was in Busselton over the weekend for the 70.3. In the local paper was a story about a proposal before the council to fix up the road to Capel. It had been requested by WTC so that they could change the bike from a 3 lap course to a 2 lap course. With 2 laps they could increase competitor numbers to 2500. The pitch was that increased competitor numbers would bring greater revenue to the region. Do any Busso locals know which road they are talking about? My concern with the proposal is that with 2500 competitors on a flat course drafting would be a major problem. Having two laps would only marginally improve the drafting problem, with out any hills to break up the big packs who will come out of the swim together. The 70.3 had a two lap cycle with 1500 athletes. From what I saw there was very little drafting. Having wave starts spreads the field out.
