    I'm so sick of hearing about the fucking jellyfish. For those of you who've never been stung, it's slightly more painful and long-lasting than a bee sting. Unless you have an allergic reactions, you're fine in an hour.
    Thank you! She's making it out like she got stung by a man o war. I'm far from world class and have been stung during races a couple times, and it slowed me down less. I'm thinking she had a shitty swim and maybe saw a jellyfish. Crazy unlikely she was swimming in a pack and was the only one hit if she were stung.

    What’s most sad about that is I can’t tell if it’s a troll, or they’re just that stupid
    Also, there's an even bigger idiot in "davews09"

    That Mike guy is a huge douche. Who goes through all that trouble (screenshotting and emailing sponsors?) because someone called their friend a name online? Dude must have a lot of free time

    Other than them wearing the same kit, how is it different than how TO was verbally organizing a train starting the bike? Dreitz didn’t bury himself for Lange, he still had a decent run. If they wore different kits, would the perception be the same? I did find it BS that, in the short time I watched, Lange got what looked to be two drafting warnings. Pros shouldn’t get warned.
    TO didn’t instruct only one athlete to have his nose in the wind literally the entire course

    No he didn't instruct one, there was a group of 5-6 at the time I saw it. All of the runners don't put their nose out, that's kind of their game plan. I'd be willing to bet Javi was never NOT behind someone. They all know eachother. If Dreitz were paid by other sponsors but the same outcome happened, would there still be the whining about teamwork? As long as there's no drafting, I don't see a difference.
    Is there a list of pro drafting penalties somewhere? Saw L. McKenzie said he got one and had written a long rant but then deleted it. Why mention you wrote a rant but deleted it? Whatever dude. Anyway, my interest is now piqued. ;)
    I've seen some AG photos allegedly near the turn around at Hawi that are pretty laughable
