Ok guys I have another shocker for you.........

 

I have decided to do one of the BSG races this year....... (more than one will be tough on the body)

I have a general question...................

 

Is it not unfair to allow certain big name athletes to enter races up until raceday basically? Some guys choose their races carefully based on the competition to ensure they accumulate enough points to try and go to Kona or the WC 70.3.

 

POW now suddenly big guns enter with 2 days to go and there goes the plan.....

 

Look, I know that if you are good enough you should make Kona but we also need to remember that most Kona winners dont peak until Kona meaning they would probably lose most of their in season races if they faced the best competition......

 

Just wondering................ (I was very distraught when Lance entered the Argus that other year as it basically nullified my chances)

Who knows how to make that back wheel spin in the pic so we can see if there is a subliminal message at 60 Kph? :D

I look at it more in terms of who will benefit the sport the most, the 50th ranked male pro who may get bumped from Kona if Lance gaines enough points or Lance. Whether you care for him or not, he'll bring a heck of a lot of mainly positive exposure to the sport.

 

YMMV,
