In Episode 56 of the Obstacle Order Brakken Kraker spends some time with Elijah to discuss where he thinks the sport will go in the future. Some controversial topics are covered. You won’t want to miss this episode if you are a fan of the sport of OCR itself.

How could the race structure be changed in order to allow the race to go more smoothly? Should the waves be divided in to a pro field, competitive wave and open wave? What should the qualifications standards be to get into said pro wave. Is doping a big problem in the sport and would the purchase of a pro card help to alleviate that? All these questions and more are answered by Brakken Kraker during this call.

Also, the future of the sport. Will OCR follow in the footsteps of MMA or CrossFit or will it go down in flames as another fitness trend. Will the success of the sport depend on race series merging or will Spartan attempt to suffocate the competition and be the last one standing.

When considering changing OCR events who should be considered the most: the open class racer or the competitive field?

Finally, will the genetic talent pool absorb the current high level OCR athletes.
