#45 – 2017 Wrap-Up and a New Direction (and Co-Host)

A new direction for the MaccaX podcast as we try to make the show more consistent and more beneficial to the members of MaccaX!

In the final episode for 2017 we introduce the new co-host of the podcast, Tim Ford. We discuss some changes coming to the show in the future and the direction of MaccaX.

We then get into the good stuff with a 2017 wrap up. We discuss what Macca thinks about the changes to the Kona qualification. Will it lead to faster times on the big island? Will there be a higher DNF rate for professional athletes? Will we see a sub-8 time in Hawaii? We discuss Super League Triathlon — how it went in 2017 and the goals for the future as well as where the 2018 races will be held! We talk about Frodo’s Kona performance and why Lionel Sanders is the most exciting professional in the sport. We discuss how the Kona race will be run in the future and what impact Javier Gomez will have on the race. We talk about Daniela Ryf’s year and Holly Lawrence beating her for the Million Dollar pay day in Bahrain. As well as a chat about the amazing year that Kristian Blummenfelt, Sarah Crowley and Laura Siddall had in 2017.

We then discuss some of the highlights of MaccaX members including AG World Champions, Ultra Man World Champion finishers and some impressive women who did the team proud in Kona.
