Too many 'pro' races?

MartinMartin Member, Rooster Endurance Member
Glancing at the IM website, I noticed there were three 'pro' races this weekend, in Victoria, Kraichgau and Switzerland. The Championship was also this weekend.

Considering that pretty big names (Kienle, Frodo, Charles, Ryf, Helle, Rinny, Reed, Steffen) won individual races, how serious was the competition at these events? Outside of Victoria, the women's races were pretty much blowouts, and even Victoria was not really close.

Do these pros deliberately avoid each other out of fear, are they chasing prize purses and appearance fees, or is it simply bad planning?
