To draft or not to draft
Just wondering what people think about the current rules of ITU racing, in particular the ability to draft in the bike section? My understanding for allowing it is because they want the winner to be the person who crosses the winning line first, rather than wait for any time penalties to be handed out afterwards (although I could be wrong as I don't see why they couldn't apply them during the run so the first across the line is still the winner).
Personally, I'd prefer drafting to be illegal as it is with regular triathlons as this way everyone is on their own with no tactical support from others. It seems to work well enough with Ironman races. I think changing the rules would throw up some changes as to who ends up on the podium each time, which would be great to see.
Just throwing it out there for anyone who's interested.
