  • Who watches athlete Youtubes?

    I'm under 30. Youtube is my television. I'll just throw on youtube on my TV for an hour or two before I go to bed. I watch GCN/GTN nearly daily unless it's a re-hash video of "why high cadence is good vs why low cadence is good".

    I'll also tune into vlogs like Cycling Maven, Francis Cade and Triathlon Taren nearly daily. The videos Talbot's doing are pretty good too since you'd never see someone like T.O./Rinny produce their own videos (who has time for that shit?).

    Youtube lets me watch what I want to watch instead of just a marathon of Diners, Drive in's and Dives every night and it's a good wind down. Occasionally I'll throw a video on during my warmup/cool down on a treadmill or on the trainer as well

  • A Single "Open" World Championship

    @doyoueventribro Do you mean Oklahoma City 2016?

    It was a great event. Jodie Swallow got arrested for checking out the lake a couple days early. On race day, the 4k "swim" turned into a 5k Swimrun. Oklahoma!
    I guess that proves my point regarding how popular ITU long course world champs are.

  • A Single "Open" World Championship

    I get that people want one championship event, but it's kind of like saying that there should be one championship event for runners.

    As much as I'd like to see Usain Bolt race against Galen Rupp in a 800m race to see who the fastest runner is, it's just not realistic.

    We should be proud that triathlon has evolved into a sport with so many disciplines. My only gripe is the amount of world championships for similar distance races. Let's just get rid of 70.3 world champions and promote Long-Course world championships more. Of course, if we did that, then we'd have to actually have pro fields at ITU long course events and apart from Chatanooga 2016 and Penticton 2017 I bet a lot of people can't even name a single ITU long course event.

  • If your bike was a car, what would it be?


    My 2010 Scott Plasma 2 would be similar to a late-90's BMW 3 series that you got for a "smoking deal" on auto trader. When people point out that it's kind of old and irrelevant you show them all the upgrades you made so it's "just like the new ones" even though you can't even put 25c tires on it.
    This strikes so close to home. Add something about not telling my wife about how much I spent on adding Di2 to the frame and it is perfect.

    "No honey, I didn't get a new bike, I just got new bike parts. I just replaced some components but it's still the same frame which is the most expensive part"

    **replace frame next year**

    "no honey, I didn't get a new bike, I just got a new frame. It's the same old components as my old bike and they're the most expensive part anyway"

  • If your bike was a car, what would it be?

    Spinning off the new Lambo/Cervelo crossover and since we've already seen relationships with Bianchi/Ferrari, Jaguar/Pinarrello, etc.

    If your bike had a crossover with a car, what would it be?

    My 2012 Norco CRR 3 (10-speed shimano 105) is a 6-Cyclinder Ford Mustang. It looks fast and has a decent frame but it's really lacking where it counts. People that don't know better thing you have a great bike but real enthusiasts know better.

    My Rocky Mountain CX bike would be a Jeep Renegade - The brand has a rich heritage of riding rough trails and getting thrashed around. You think this model would be the same but if you actually attempt it you'll probably die.
