No Canadian Duathlon Championships for 09?

I just heard from a second hand source that there will be no 2009 Canadian Duathlon Championships. Supposedly they didn't have a RD that wanted to host the event.
They will use a few other races to choose their worlds team.
Can anyone chime in and verify this? I looked at tricanada's site and couldn't find anything.
Sad indeed.

Looking for Ideas

Hi all in duathlon land.
I am looking for your input as to what you think will resurrect duathlon. Throw me some ideas at what you'd like to see at races. I have proposed a"National Parks Department Duathlon Series" held in some of the most scenic US Parks. Shorter distances and possibly culminating in a series championships? Think back to the Coors Light days but only the US Parks Dept as sponsor. Your thoughts?

Here's the hot setup for short course duathlon. Blaze through your transitions with a pair of these!

Desert Classic Duathlon Sold Out!

Haven't seen this happen in a Duathlon in a looooong time. The age group divisions are sold out for February's Desert Classic Duathlon. There are still some elite/pro spots left and spots for juniors and kids. Hmmm......maybe short course worlds being here this year has something to do with it?

Atomicman Duathlon

If you're not heading to Richmond for Nationals and you still feel like racing that weekend this looks like a cool destination type of race. Just be sure to take your Geiger counter!

Online Running Store To Check Out.

If you're like me, I don't have any decent store with a good selection of running gear so online is my best option. Ive been using The Running Warehouse for a few years. Their prices and customer service are great with free second day air shipping and free return shipping.
Give em a try!

Duathon 09 Championships Course Videos

Found these on youtube. Course preview of Duathlon Nationals. Take your motion sickness pills, I think the dude must have been riding a kangaroo or something.
Most of the run course looks pretty butt ugly and the roads look kind of crappy. The bike course doesn't seem too bad. Watch out for crap on the road and those huge expansion joints on the bridges!
If I'm healthy I hope to be there.

Copenhagnize Baby!

Its crappy and cold and snowy and I'm dying to ride outside! Just bored and reading the Copenhagenize blog. Check it out, some pretty cool stuff on it! Enjoy.

The "Screw Shoe"

Ok, get your minds out of the gutter;)
I don't know about where you live but the weather has been pretty sucky here thus far and we have had quite a few icy days that made running quite treacherous and unfortunately I don't have access to a treadmill for such days so the cheap solution is the "screw shoe".
Its remarkably easy to do and surprisingly effective!
Here's the link.
