Weirdest Race day cancellation/modification....?
I have had some odd luck at my last two races, which involved delayed starts and ultimately, last minute changes to the race.
This got me thinking about what other stories of odd race morning events you guys have experienced...
A few weeks back, the Dewey Beach triathlon had a delayed start and then a cancelled swim, replaced by a beach run to T-1 due to crazy fog out in the ocean (I think this was the same day as Toughman NY).
Not that crazy, but the next race.......
This past weekend, as we are setting up in transition at the Baltimore Triathlon, we find out that some drunk lady crashed her car into a phone pole on the bike course, bringing it down in the middle of the road and forcing the RD to re-direct the course to a much shorter route.
This lady must have been raging hard, because the roads were clear around 5-5:30 am, so this happened at like 6 am.
Everyone was bummed, but I honestly have no idea how the RD could have prepared for that.
