Last night Universal Sports aired the F1 Fearless Pro Super Sprint. This was my last race of my 2013 season, about two weeks ago. The race took place in Mission Bay, home to the very first triathlon almost 40 years ago.
I thought the coverage of the men’s race was pretty good. They did a good job showing how the race for the podium unfolded. I had barely any race coverage. The issue here isn’t that the television cameras didn’t capture??enough of the race, but rather that I didn’t race fast enough. Had I been in the mix, I would have had lots of air-time, like my The Triathlon Squad teammate Eric Lagerstrom. Eric, Joe Maloy and I did get some one-on-one time with the camera before the race. At this point in my pro career, it’s still pretty neat to see your face on tv. I plan to get over this feeling as this becomes more common… 🙂
In case you missed it last night, the race will re-air a few more times this week.
