He got some shimano wheel with a slow Rubino tire on it. It took 3:15 to change out. They did not have a disc to fit so all that had to do was swap disc off his flat and put on the spare wheel. They did not have the tools at start that’s why it took so long. Lionel was calm and collected just laughing about it.

I will say Probably biggest draft train I have ever seen at an event today outside of Texas. No officials on course giving out penalties. Jackson and chase were the only people I saw pulling all day.

Everyone in the pack sat at about 10m behind them all day. Lionel caught them looked at them and just shook his head had a few words for the camera then dropped them.

Hats off to Jackson and chase doing 90% of the work.

Could we have a motion to add some exemptions for 70.3 WC and 140.6 WC Qualifying? I would like to see:

-Olympic Gold gets 4 yr exemption to both
-ITU World Champion gets 1 yr exemption to both
-Roth Champion gets 1yr exemption to both

I wonder if it was the Mexican kid; he didn’t ride like this @ Oceanside, and today he rode only 1 min slower than Beals???

yes please, some version of this. I've been arguing the same for a while now - it would be great for the sport.

Motos in play? Sam got outbiked by 3’ by a guy who rode 1:54?

By American bias is showing but is that performance legit? 1:54 is insane

When ‘a guy’ happens to be Frederik Funk, defending champion and insanely strong cyclist, yeah sounds legit to me.

But perhaps that’s my European bias showing ;)

x3. funk is an absolute hammer, he didn't just come out of nowhere. plus he was a ways back out of the swim, so he wouldn't have had lead moto help at least at first.

not everyone who beats an American is cheating!

Both Olympic champions were given a wild card for Kona or St George I believe! But yes i wish they were given exemptions for both at least for 2 years...

There would need to be some kind of validation mechanism included with such wild cards. It is not sensible to encourage them to just turn up and race the championships. Sensibly Duffy chose not to take up the wild card offer.
The current Olympic Champions have both had epic fails on their first* efforts to race longer than standard distance, since their fantastic wins in Tokyo.
Blummenfelt couldn't manage a bike that would support him for 90km at St George last September and Duffy gets to her first race late in the week, the airline system fails her and she/her team fails to solve the 'no bike' challenge (best of luck to her in the races she chooses to compete in for the rest of the year - I would like to see her race for the 'Internationals' team at the Collins Cup, and to be matched against Ryf or Philipp).

This is getting a bit crazy....the cake is not that big
We had Challengue 70.3, IM 70.3s, two IMs, WTS this weekend. IMO, after the lockdown there are too many races for pros...add the PTO opens soon, Collins Cup, etc. For the spectator, this is difficult to follow. I am a fan, but for appealing new people into the sport things should be easier to understand:
WTSs championship. Continental championships
IM 70.3 world and continental championships
Challenge overall championship
Challenge The Championship
IM world and continental championships
Arena Games series
Superleague...

Now, the PTO opens....

If there are so many, it will be difficult to find the best athletes facing each other...I dont know how but IM, Challengue, PTO and ITU should find a common path. ITU and IM agreed already about the long distance worlds and continentals (so ITU is not organizing on their own as before, as far as I know)...

I´d love to see just five 70.3 races in a season with the all top guys in. Some athletes are just competing in Challengue and they barely race IM 70.3.
I´d like to see 3-4 140.6 races, including the world championship, just for the best

It is sad that you just find 6 pro women in a race...I know the purpose is getting profits from the Age groupers but the promotion should start for making this easier....

P.D. I am sorry but I hated the eliminator in Montreal. Give me a standard olympic distance and go with the relay for the supersprint....the transitions are getting more important that the watts :(

"Frustriathlete" Spaniard. Sorry for my english for the sensitive ones :P
