Bike 55:20 [3] 10.73 mi (11.6 mph) +216ft
ahr:127 max:159 shoes: Niner Air9 RDO

quick ride to check out a new MTB fit and parts. got it overhauled last week and tweaked fit a bit. also i am trying a new saddle (Specialized Power w Mimic) in hopes of helping/fixing chafing issues.

we picked the CCL paved trails to avoid getting our bikes dirty since they are clean right now and have to be SUPA clean for NZ immigration. tried out the new Greenway connector from CCL to Aquaport and it is super nice. stoked for STL to have groups like GRG who build these things.

Run 1:02:06 [3] 5.11 mi (12:09 / mi) +375ft 11:22 / mi
ahr:153 max:166 shoes: Salomon Speedcross M8 blue

shortish jog at CCL to get some fresh air during GZ packing prep. yes the packing is so intense it needs its own prep period.

trails were 50/50 fine/horrible. lots of frozen ruts and footprints. not that fun in spots.

but we ran into Chuck, Steve, and Bob! so great to see them and have a chat. then we decided to join them at Six Mile Bridge brewery afterwards for a drink and a snack. yay friends!

phoenix. this has turned into a Friday night benchmark ride and HR:NP ratio is improving!

we watched the ARWC 2019 video and the race course looked amaz0rs.

finished listening to Freakonomics Episode 364 about the hidden side of sports. really interesting to hear how UFC built from a small no-name non-sport to a relatively large business. it reminded me of what AR is trying to do. one of the things UFC did/does is built their own TV production crew, and it sells the produced show to ESPN and other outlets, while also selling Pay-Per-View content. that seems the be the largest revenue-generator for the organization. this is different than NFL/etc. who sell the rights to their games to major networks and the major networks foot the bill for filming/broadcasting.

so thinking of how that would apply to AR, it's like ARWS or USARA or whomever would have to hire TV producers (which ARWS sort of did at WC in Reunion) and then sell that produced content to TV (or streaming, more likely). it's exactly the same model that Expedition Alaska took with the UoC Master Class - we paid $3 (with coupon) to watch that show (and it was well worth it!!).

how much does UFC charge for their Pay Per View?? $65 per show!!

also interesting was the UFC fighers are employed/paid by UFC. so it would be like ARWS or USARA or whomever pays teams to participate in the races. outside team sponsorship is presumably allowed and encouraged to supplement these "salaries".
