Alert! DC Tri Male Triathlete Chased Down
POSTED: 2/11/13 11:44 AM

An unfortunate situation occurred this past weekend. While out on a friendly jog, PeasantMan War Council member, Ed Moser, was mercilessly chased down by a group of women wearing pink tutus. Fortunately, Ed was able to escape with all of this clothes in tact. A police report was filed, but the perps are still on the loose.

Ed is currently recovering at his home with a cigar in one hand, a burbon on the other. Get well soon, Ed!

I think the board should act swiftly on this matter to ensure this p(r)etty crime happens again.

That’s pretty, funny. Is this Valentine's Week, or Sadie Hawkins?

Given the political context of that Capitol Hill run, I decided a “cover-up” was fitting, while most bared their very soles, among other things, to the assembled thongs, throngs, who obviously weren't operating under the Grammy's "no busts, no buns" rules.

The charity event, Btw, raised a million smackers. In dollars. Far more in kisses.


Still, such trivial things get in the way of truly serious news about our sport:

Bloomburg News, Feb. 11, 2013. Colorado Springs, CO—USA Triathlon (USAT), the governing body for the sport of triathlon, today approved the use of surveillance drones to patrol the courses of its events.

At many races, officials on motorbikes charged with the enforcement of the rules have become overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of racers and the great length of the courses, leading to much unnoticed cheating. But the high-tech aircraft, with their powerful cameras, are expected to cut down on illegal drafting and other banned behavior at EagleMan, PeasantMan, and other USAT-sanctioned events.

“It’s about time,” commented a top-ranked triathlete and cyclist from the Austin-based headquarters of the Livestrong Foundation. “Folks are forever drafting behind me on the bike, and using the respite to dope illegally too.”

Almost all agree that surveillance drones outfitted with cameras are long overdue at popular venues such as Lake Placid and Kona. Somewhat more controversial is the proposal to outfit the aircraft with Hellfire missiles. The admittedly laudable notion is to deliver justice surely and swiftly, by zapping anyone caught on video cutting the turnaround buoy of a swim or taking a shortcut during the run.

The issue raises a wicket of legal and ethical concerns, however. Quite a few participants in USAT races are simply foreigners, even Vietnamese, but most are from the USA, which leads to the issue of whether USAT has the constitutional authority to target American athletes with high-precision rocketry.

Still, many feel that anyone callous enough to cheat on their fellow triathletes forfeits the rights and privileges of citizenship, or even access to the club store to buy the spiffy new racing kit.

The drone technology will be tri-ed out in the upcoming series of training tris at Arlington’s Yorktown High, where the surrounding neighborhood’s many hills, trees, houses, and military bases are expected to test the surveillance & weapons technology with realistic, race-like settings.
