Terrible coverage in the past, and slightly less terrible coverage now, does not = awesome race coverage (as stated by your initial reply).

With regard to the TDF not being comparable to Kona, if you're meaning that in terms of the level of interest in the event, might want to ask yourself why those events are not comparable in that respect.

..
The Super League coverage and race library is awesome.
The ITU coverage and race library is awesome
The coverage of Roth is awesome as is the Challenge Championship.
Youtube race videos are awesome.
Access to countless Pro's and training info on Youtube is awesome
Social media access across the sport is awesome
The choice of triathlon podcasts is awesome
Ironman can be a bit shabby and certainly disappointing but who cares when there is so much else to follow..Unless of course a persons whole triathlon world is M-Dot related.
Triathlon forums can have people who make the sport less enjoyable so there is that

So looking at my little list I will continue to be very happy with the state of play in the sport of triathlon. How upset you are about it is up to you.

Can't believe how much criticism this guy got on here for actually showing emotion at winning his first Ironman - when people on the same forum are whining about wanting more character and rivalries from the pro's.

Thought this celebration was awesome.

Yeah, my brother who does give a darn about triathlon even sent me the video of his celebration. We need more of it.

A really good Oly dist. series/scene (like the old Bud Light USTS), so it's not all about 70.3/IM.


fourth, and get rid of tri bikes. That will be more entry friendly, as the road bike is most popular type of bike people have.


Last I checked a tri bike wasn’t required...so not sure how “getting rid of tri bikes” will make sport more entry friendly?


People come do a race, see they cant hang with the unaffordable tri bike, and quit


This is why I like swimming and running races.....equipment is not an excuse either way.

swim and run have their issues.

swim race: wetsuits - ok for cold race maybe

running: the Nike bouncer Fly 4% series.

Whatever happened to the 'Dreams Are Pesky' / GoFundMe 'pro' triathlete?

More GoFundMe campaigns from 'fast' ag-er for : Kona, a bike, entry fees, counseling, advice?

More supplement companies, more is more.
