    So fucking stupid. It doesn't change the fact that there are still too many people of similar abilities racing on a mostly flat highway. This accomplishes nothing other than ruining arguably the most iconic moment in our sport.

    1. Nice work sending the faster women off on the heels of the slower men.
    2. Legit nice: Legacy types (and hopefully those who buy their way in) in the last wave.

    Something tells me those who buy their way in (XC Challenge, "His Highness," etc.) will go with their age-groups. Those guys aren't used to going last for anything.

    Very timely to announce this right after losing two swimmers in Madison. Also, I'm so pissed, I was just within 4 hours of qualifying too, and they do this. That's it, I'm dropping to short course.

    I'm so glad we have @bbculp on this forum so I know what to be mad about.

    And I agree, this whole age group wave thing is so fucking stupid.

    @James Lange I really don't know why I've been so fucking angry at triathlon lately. Maybe it's because everything else is going surprisingly well... I'm finally making some OK money in this sport; I've got my back issues under control and I'm [somewhat] fit again; the Cubs haven't blown their season yet. Not to mention they just legalized weed and gambling in Illinois...on the same fucking day!

    I guess I just don't have anything else to be angry about. I'm sure the Cubs will fuck that up at some point this summer and I'll go back to not caring about all the ridiculous shit Ironman does.

    @bbculp go read the commentary under the article on this issue at the twitch. I am sure you will find something to be mad about there.

    @Rash I'd rather not. Can we just get a snarky summary?

    Well, I'm not a woman and I'm mildly offended by the sexism in Stan's posts there. I'm half tempted to visit the women's forum to see their reaction. The rest of the posts are the usual BS you would expect from people that need draft packs to make the 17 hour cutoff in a non-drafting World Championship event.
