    She didn't squat while holding the map? WTF

    Also, I hope 1 rider goes for a monster breakaway and laps the field.

    This is where Ashley Horner will start her 50 irons in 50 days . Crit and IM are practically the same thing, right?

    Finally, a group of riders with worse bike handling skills than triathletes.

    @wchevron I wouldn't be so sure...
    Though this will be a hell of a lot more entertaining to watch than an ironman. Or any of the other crossfit events.

    I just paused my Eurosport subscription. I will happily pay to watch this.

    Steroids, no way. Maybe a bit of excess Salbutamol for these girls, but that's it.
    Let's hear it for more clean cycling!!! Thanks Mark for the tip off. This is great.

    Dammit. Missed it, and can't find the replay on FB. They were falling over trying to unclip on their "time trial"

    Late to the party, but figured I'd chime in.

    Twitter was insane during this. Everyone was commenting. I saw some friends that go to crossfit and they were telling me all about the bike race at the crossfit games.

    For me, as a race director, crossfit gyms are HUGE markets for super sprint/sprint distance triathlon and a great gateway into the sport. Crossfitters are already used to working out nearly every day and now you just introduced a new way to do that.

    Are crossfitters going to take over ironman? probably not. Could they add a few numbers to your local sprint/olympic triathlon and help keep it financially viable? You betcha.

    TrainerRoad guys recapped this at the beginning of their last podcast.
    Apparently when they crash, Crossfitters bounce.
