They are showing a ton of the men's triathlon. Darn good coverage.

Glad you found it.

2011 - ThisĀ  year is about the journey to December 31, 2011, not how soon the number on the scale satisfies me.

I did get kind of tired of how much they down played Jenkins. "His run doesn't matter he did his job. he's finished." Ok we get it...but good grief, the guy was right up there for the whole swim and the bike.

I sort of got bored with the general dynamic of the bike and started doing other things, did a break ever end up sticking? Is that how the little group on the run was formed? I couldn't understand sometimes why roders were drilling at the front of the pack for extended periods where they were just towing 40 other guys.

It would be great to have elite waves at local triathlons that allowed drafting to give more people a sense to develop tactics in this type of racing over time and give something for age group racers to aspire to in terms of a format change and cash prizes.

Just 2 guys broke away on the bike, but they were overtaken on the run by the second lap and finished fairly far back. The annoncers kept saying how these two guys were not strong runners, and we laughed as they went out on the run and the announcer said "they look like 2 cyclists going for a run".

That was some kind of exciting finish wasn't it? We were yelling at Simon and I am sure he heard us!

Your elite waves aren't draft legal?
