Non-drafting?

As I ponder the universe, and wonder about what to do with my time, Ironman often crops up as worthy of a revisit. It's just got a nice ring to it, everyone can identify with it and there's enough challenge to make it interesting. There's a good group to train with in Hereford and Bobby would be a mine of good info (if I could keep up).

A couple of things put me off though:

1) The commercialisation - M-Dot is a franchise akin to McD's. You know what you're going to get (says me who hasn't done an M-Dot race!), it'll be slick and efficient... but a little too 'American' for me. There are alternatives though which brings me to #2

2) The drafting. 1500 racers and one road? Result is...



As a biker that's not my bag.
