Ed. James Lange is a HOOT!

In October my esteemed colleague and veritable “real journalist” Kelly O’Mara published a thought provoking piece titled “Make the Best Amateur Triathletes Turn Pro.” As title implies, Kelly argues that the best amateurs should be forced to “go Pro” (this echoes a similar theory I have for the adult film industry, but I’ll save that for another time and place).

A typical race length is 75 minutes, consisting of a 10-minute pool swim, 10-minute T1, 30-minute bike (in a cycle studio or on an exercise bike), 5-minute T2, and a 20-minute treadmill run. Racers are “graded” on a curve based on the number of participants, with athletes receiving points based on how they performed in each discipline....
