Now, I can't much get my head around this, although I am a member, one of the original individuals members going back to their formation as Triathlon America in 2010. I've been to all four US Conferences, and partially attended the International conference in London last year during the ITU World Finals, I'm not one of their insiders.
You can read my remarks here, here and here about some of this years sessions, and an interesting series of write-ups I did for the tri247.com website while at the 2nd Triathlon America conference, where WTC CEO Andrew Messick spoke, calling Armstrongs return to triathlon "the elephant in the room".
Once the conference brewhaha over Lance Armstrongs potential appearance and rebuttal of USADA boss Travis Tygart was over, I thought things would die down. Apparently not based on the TBI tweet, and a scathing analysis by the folks over Endurance Films. Endurance Films are a big contributor to the TBI Conference, providing both videos for use at the conference, and filming various aspects of it. Their blog though has only marginally more content than this one, and so the "Armstrong Snubs" blog was both unusual in terms of content, and once I watched the video interview with TBI President Jack Carress, I was left confused. I left a comment on their blog, which they published. Here it is as well.
