Sally Edwards is not doing the Danskin Tri's anymore? What happened?

It looks like Trek has Maggie Sulllivan too.


I am thinking that this is not at all a bad thing. The more venues you can get for women the better. If you are training for 1 - how great to do 2 - I just wish they were in different cities like Minneapolis. All of the others are more than a 12 hour drive from here :(

I too have been wondering what this switch is really all about. Since they seem to be planning one in Seattle, I start to wonder if they mean to compete with, rather than augment, Danskin--and if so, why?
