I am a fan of Ironman racing. Coverage varies race by race but there is always someone I am rooting for at these events. Usually with domestic races I know a few of the pros and there are a few local athletes to check up on. Even if all the coverage available is sporadic updates and tweets from people who are at the race I pay attention. I Europe actually already does nice race recap videos of their pro races on YouTube, I recommend watching them during trainer rides to get fired up! A few simple steps and Ironman could really get more value out of the pro races. I think it would be good for them, good for the sport, and definitely good for us pros as well. Andrew Messick, WTC CEO, has already taken some smart steps to get the pro races more organized (regional championships, rotating 70.3 world championship) but there is much room for improvement. I am optimistic about his leadership in developing Ironman as a real professional sport. Of course I wish they would make the changes now rather than step by step over the coming years but it is not a perfect world. READ MORE
