An oceania race was pretty much a staple of the series until a few years ago.
I was merely pointing out that the season will have to start earlier or finish later which would make the season longer. When you factor in the travel required it becomes even harder.
The world has changed in the last 2 years!
1 in Oceania, 1 in N America, 2 in Europe 1 in Middle East 1 in Asia. Thatâ€™s 6 venues that cover all the big locations.
Score 4 out of 5 + GF
Unfortunately I think they race 1-2 too many races but of course I think the WTCS is a big money maker for WT with the host cities bidding, etc.
So I get it.
-USAT Level II
4mins is a lot of time to make up and the French seem about 20 sec off Wilde and Yee.

I'd have expected one of Waugh or Rainsley to have broke through and start podiuming by now, as it stands right now GTB, Potter and Coldwell would be the three girls I'd be sending, obviously a lot will happen between now and then.
I Like the Idea of a 6-8 event WTCS, with 5 + GF counting, giving people a couple of mulligans or room for injury. And in terms of the WTCS season, trying to keep the circuit to something like a March-Sept/Oct range would be helpful. I know that we're still recovering from the COVID related schedule disruptions and trying to give federations the events that they paid for, but this two year WTCS gets wonky. The other approach is to have a series with 4 Standard, 4 sprint, 4 super sprint, with two series rankings. One for Standard/Sprint and one for Sprint/Super Sprint. Top 4 scores would count (with at least two standards for the longer series or two super sprints for the shorter series).
He lost 1.5 minutes in the swim, and a further 2 minutes on the bike, yet only lost 30 to 40 seconds to those that where fighting for the race. I am not sure he has the motivation and the commitment after the big disappointment at the Olympics. Much like Louis. I don't know if this is a Filliol squad issue, as none of them are performing well.
"Frustriathlete" Spaniard. Sorry for my english for the sensitive ones :P
