IMTALK EPISODE 455 - Braden Currie

News: IM Melbourne is coming up this weekend; GPS at Melbourne; Challenge change their pro system.

This Weeks Discussion: Hypothetic question. If WTC were forced or chose to permanently cancel Kona and hold a world championship race in the middle east or Asia would you go? For arguments sake lets say the standard of age group competition would remain the same as Kona, all the pro’s would be there and the course would be suitably challenging. Comment here
