A New Triathlon Club for Los Angeles?

Rumor has it triathletes in Los Angeles are going to have a choice in tri clubs soon after the New Year.

For the better part of the 2000s, the Santa Monica based LA Tri Club, which boasts over 1500 members, has been the only club choice in the Los Angeles area. Word on the street is local athletes have grown tired of the LA Tri Club being used as a breeding ground for Triathletix coaching services, and of the ubiquitous presence of "Hollywood type" members. Other companies would like in on the triathlete pie, too, but apparently only want triathletes without over sized egos. (The existence of such triathletes is still under investigation.)


Looks like the LA Tri Club has some competition coming, also out of the Santa Monica area.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Will LA Tri Club loyalty stifle the emerging club's membership? Will people have dual memberships?

One thing is certain. Choice is always a good thing.

Let the games begin!
