With some pretty vehement complaints being aired after blatant drafting on the pro bike leg at Mandurah 70.3 on Sunday, people are also wondering if drug testing should be introduced into Australian triathlons?
What are your thoughts on this issue?
Some wish for it, others work for it!

Yep bring it on - there is no point in racing with cheats.

I also have heard so many people talking about the pros in the Mandurah race all sitting on each others tail and not being pinged for drafting. Is it because the organisers are concerned that the pros will not come back next year if they get pinged or are the TO's are concerned about pinging the pros?

I would have hoped or thought that the pros were already drug tested but I can see no reason why it should not be in place automatically for the top three in each age group regardless of it being a prize money race. Of course the prize money events should have this already in place but I do not think they do as I have never heard or seen anyone getting tested.

If it's not hurting your not tri'ing!
