So, who had Tyler Mislawchuk in second place to J Brownlee in their Super League Fantasy Pool today?

Yeah, me neither. GO CANADA GO.

    Was fun to watch as usual - too bad for Luis, however it makes tomorrow a little more exciting for the overall. I wouldn't be too happy being any of those other guys knowing Luis was just resting today.

    The fact that he didn't eat it or take out anyone else on that flat coming off a corner says a lot about ITU bike skills.

    It was funny how everyone that was asked about Luis mentioned how will he racing angry tomorrow. Will be fun to watch. For overall win, I am rooting for J. Brownlee. I loved how he was so honest last year about the crap season he had been having. Loved that he was just excited to actually win again today as he said. Plus, Luis is with BE13 now which sucks. I blame his puncture (first one in 15 years) in the BE13 jinx.

    I love the enduro format with the eliminations. Probably the only tri format where I don't start checking my phone mid-race. I am amazed at how well Superleague pulled off this series. I enjoyed the Hamilton race they did as a test with just men but doubted they'd be able to pull off a series for men and women. They really did it though. Only issue I have is that I found the Singapore course boring visually. It was so closed in with barriers that I got claustrophobic. I think Malta was my favorite course of this season. The bro love between Brownlee and Luis is cool too.

    Didn't realize they'd worked in leader jerseys until watching this weekend - absolutely love that. Think it brings much more personality to the series.

    Yes. The leader jerseys were cool. So were the white jerseys for the "youngin's." Made so much sense each time I saw one of the twins crash.

    Speaking of kit design, the flags integrated into the shorts are awesome on the men. I know the ladies kits cant do that as configured, too bad, cool if they did.
    The Singapore bike chicane narrowness bothered me. I assume it was forced upon them, cause I'd never add that simply to make the course more technical for the cyclists.

    The first women’s race kit in Jersey had sleeves to fit a flag but then had a weird back cutout. Kits were criticized so they moved to a more traditional design with flags on the side. Just harder to see with the gals so thin and rarely not in motion. ;) Only when they slow down or you get a side view do you see it.

    Sworry @Jennifer Post , I meant the ladies kits couldn't use the leg flag since they were configured as the high cut rather than full leg suits. It's easy to see their flags during the race, and they did a good design job with them.

    I love super league. I think the production value and the quality of the racing has improved each event. I also think it will be even better next year as the overall quality of the field improves.

    @doyoueventribro Did you know Jacob Birtwhistle is from Tasmania?

    I agree with @James Lange . The racing and production just keeps getting better. @doyoueventribro, I forgot about your video. It was a masterpiece after day 1. Not sure Macca would still call
    him “Young Jacob” now. I am trying to remember if he referred to Beaugrand all weekend as “Young Cassandre”. I may have to go back and watch.

    @Jennifer Post , I can never hear his name again without saying "Young Jacob Birtwhistle" for the rest of my life. It's permanent.

    It'll be good if you're doing trivia sometime, "This Tasmanian triathlete might become world champion some day, he was also young at some point"

    I mostly just love how he always says his full name. No "Jake" or just "Birtwhistle", it's always the "Jacob Birtwhistle" and usually "Young Tasmanian Jacob Birtwhiste, Esquire"
