The Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championships Series has entered its second exciting year and has already had a huge impact on the global triathlon scene.


The magic mixture has consisted of lining up the world’s triathlete stars at each iconic venue, along with day-to-day competitive triathletes who can rub shoulders with these stars in parallel age-group races.

London’s Hyde Park has an added ingredient of being the chosen 2012 venue, giving all racers the opportunity to experience the Games before they have even begun.

Entries for the Olympic Distance sold out back in April but a chance may still remain for anyone whose heart is set on competing by linking up with Marie Curie Cancer Care and raising money for the event’s official charity.

I’m hoping that lots and lots of keen triathletes – as well as novices that are just starting out – will sign up to race in the age-group events.”

 

In 2011, the London leg of the Series could prove the perfect test for the Olympic Games the next year. But more of that next issue!

Next event date:
Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 July 2010

The event will be broadcast live on BBC TV Sport with a highlights package on Channel 4 alongside global broadcasts.


Meanwhile Britain’s Alistair Brownlee, the reigning world champion, will be hoping to return to fitness and race at Hyde Park en route to the Grand Final in Budapest in September. He has made no secret of how important the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World 

Championship London is to him for more reason than one.

 

“It’s the one to win.” he said. “It’s also great to lay down a marker in front of the home fans and London will be more crucial this year because I’ve missed the first two events of the ITU World Championships Series because of injury.”  He added of the UK Sport-supported elite event.


He continued, “The Hyde Park triathlon is a really important event to me and to the sport of triathlon.
