I'm out of the loop and not really paying attention, but maybe:
yes at least it is in the US. I've said it many times before. Put the NAOC in the early spring every year there is a WOC and have it double as team trials for CAN and USA. but perhaps not organic enough or perhaps worries some 'nonames' will
make the team.
I was surprised to see the term "value over a replacement runner" show up in the latest discussion of the selection process.
I THOUGHT THE SAME THING! My goal when running running elite was to be WAR +/- zero
I wasn't surprised by the "The difficult part is that we need more maps, a lot more."
because actually the difficult part is we need more running training, a lot more.
Well to be fair that map line was by someone in Vermont, where indeed there is a shortage of maps because GMOC is really small.
