Superfrog, WTC, and boycotts?
In the Bahrain podcast @PreachSwanson
argued that boycotting WTC, or an event, removes your voice from the discussion. In an instance like this, where WTC has raised the price of an iconic race that is perpetually filled from $170 to $500, I can't see purchasing a registration as anything other than an endorsement.
If I register, and complain, I'm saying that, while I don't like this price, I'm willing to pay it. Why would WTC listen to my critique of their rapes if I'm participating in them? Where is their motivation for change if they're still making a very healthy profit at the expense of the sport's long term prospects?
Anyway, this one is a little personal for me as this was really high on my list of races I wanted to do.
