Kyle challenges race promoters to pivot quickly towards asynchronous competition and virtual events if their business is to survive this pandemic.

Keep Racing with Asynchronous Virtual Events

The world has been turned on its head with the pandemic of COVID-19. What is a race promoter to do when every event you direct requires people to be in close proximity to each other? The hard truth is that an events business that stops having events is out of business. However, if you pivot RIGHT NOW and incorporate Asynchronous Competition Events and virtual activities into your portfolio, you have a chance to capture an audience that is looking — albeit HUNGRY — for safe and creative ways to exercise in isolation.
