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?

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!

No Longcourse Worlds for 2009

"ITU regretfully announces that the Long Distance Duathlon World Championships will not be included in the 2009 season. Despite efforts to have the event, no city bid for the championships. ITU is committed to continuing the event for 2010 and beyond"
