>Can you name a women triathlete who could have stopped the Australian
than rewards, individual effort on the bike. This made for TV version of the
traditional sport of triathlon is now derisively referred to as "triterium",
among other things not printable on this NG.
Could someone have run down the Australian women? I guess we won't know this
until they get out and try a race based upon individual effort. I believe
there is one in this year's USTS series of World Cup races (Madison, WI?) When
the participants have to individually race the bike portion, and stay out of
the pack and not draft or be DQ'd, the run becomes a trues barometer of who
really has it.
None of this anti-drafting dialogue is a slap at the athletes, but at the
people behind the scene who manipulate events for their own benefit.
