A Single "Open" World Championship
Remember the days when the single day world champs was not so divided between racing types and distance specialists? For a couple years it was exciting to see folks stake so much on the single race.
Both Kona, through qualifying and distance specialization, and certainly ITU now represent exclusive events.
I know it's unlikely, maybe even unwanted or unneeded, but could there ever really be a one day, true world champs, which is even open to amateur Cinderella stories that may have to win regional races?
What say you experts?
