Has anyone seen similar stats for US and worldwide triathlon racing? I used to have such stats for the US but they are no longer accurate, I’m sure. If you have such data and wouldn’t mind sharing I’d appreciate it. It needs to be current – within the last 3 years. I’d be interested in the same for cycling and running. Once I’ve vetted the data I’ll post it here for everyone. Thanks!
