Countdown to 2019 International Triathlon Season

IslandStats.com
The 2019 Triathlon season promises to deliver another thrilling ten months of racing, with Spanish legend Javier Gomez returning to do battle with teammate Mario Mola, Flora Duffy eager to check Vicky Holland and Katie Zaferes’ progress, and a host of breakthrough talent displaying their skills at 17 World Cups around the globe.

A year out from its Olympic debut, the Mixed Relay World Series will encompass four stages (including August’s Tokyo 2020 Test Event), Pontevedra hosts the Multisport World Championships, and Aquathlon makes its debut at the World Beach Games.

Buckle up, it’s going to be quite a ride…

February

The season gets underway on the second weekend of February in the summer sun of South Africa and the snow-covered Alps. Cape Town will host the World Cup curtain-raiser, a race that always attracts a host of stars looking to get their years off to a good start, while the Italian town of Asiago will see the run-bike-ski Winter Triathlon World Championships.

March

March sees the first top-tier race of the year with the Daman World Triathlon Abu Dhabi where Great Britain’s Holland and Spain’s Mario Mola begin the defense of their world titles with the likes of Bermuda’s Duffy and Vincent Luis hot on their heels and the weekend also kicks off the 2019 World Mixed Relay Series. That all comes the week before the Mooloolaba World Cup. The month is wrapped up in New Zealand with the long-running New Plymouth World Cup sprint-distance race.

April

The action then ramps up once again at the end of April with the WTS action return to tropical climes for the MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda, where Duffy made light work of Corkscrew Hill to deliver a consummate performance for the race’s debut on the calendar last year.

November

The World Cup season draws to a close in November, with the Ecuadorian city of Salinas holding the penultimate race of 2019. The curtain then comes down on another packed calendar in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, where a warm Caribbean send-off awaits the athletes at the end of a busy year.

Duffy Women's Best of 2018 Bike Breakaway

IslandStats.com
While the New Year is in full effect, the anticipation for the upcoming 2019 Triathlon season is rapidly approaching!

However, before we dive too deep into the year and we start gearing up for all of the action that is expected to unfold, we want to take a look back into the 2018 season and honour all of the impressive accomplishments, stats, moments and performances that made the year so epically thrilling!

So drumroll please, the category is…. BIKE BREAKAWAY!

Linking Flora Duffy to dominating bike performances is not a new connection.

In fact, the Bermudian and two-time WTS World Champion is famous for her strength and tenacity in the cycle.

But in 2018 and her showcase in Bermuda was next-level inspiring. She started the race coming out of the water first and busted through the first Transition onto the 1500-metre course.

While she started out with someone on her tail, it was her first push on corkscrew hill where she blasted off. Duffy couldn’t be touched, she was unstoppable and impressively rode a full 38.38 KM by herself.

She rode with a speedy average pace of 36.072KM/HR to make ultimately finish with a lead of 58 seconds over the chase behind her. She then went on to win the race, which was a memorable moment for everyone who witnessed it since she was in front of her home crowd.

Bermuda World Triathlon Series Issue Photographer RFP

IslandStats.com
Bermuda is preparing to host the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Triathlon Series Bermuda for a second time.

On Saturday April 27th, 2019 Hamilton will be the venue once again for the televised international sporting event, with the signature blue carpet finish line on Front Street.

“The Local Organizing Committee of World Triathlon Bermuda (WTSBDA) invites photographers to register their interest to provide a full service participant photography service for the event. A Request for Proposal (RFP) has been published online and is available Here Request For Proposal (RFP) WTS Bermuda 2019
,” the organizers said.

“The RFP states that WTSBDA requires the photography provider to produce and execute a strategy to photograph every race entrant in all Age Group categories during each stage of their race and as they cross the finish line. Those photos should be made available for sale online to participants within 24 – 72 hours of their finish time, searchable by name and bib number.”

WTSBDA spokesperson and Chief Product and Experiences Development Officer of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, Pat Phillip-Fairn said; “We encourage all interested local photographers to submit their details for this opportunity, even those who do not think they meet all the criteria of the RFP. We may need additional photographers and would like to know who is available. We ask that they submit using the same online process as the RFP.”

Phillip-Fairn said; “We’re pleased to see the economic and ongoing benefits of hosting a world-class international event in Bermuda again being realized. This is an excellent opportunity for some of the island’s best photographers to work at international standards right here at home.”

The MS Amlin World Triathlon 2019 will be hosted in Hamilton on April 27th, 2019. It is the second of three annual World Series Triathlon events that Bermuda will host; in 2021 the island will be home to the ITU Grand Final and Age Group World Championships.

Phillip-Fairn explained, “Everyone in Bermuda can participate in the MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda Festival Weekend; as a racer, a volunteer or as a spectator.

She said, “We look forward to seeing many local relay teams; corporate groups and friends who are running, cycling and swimming enthusiasts. It’s not necessary to be a triathlete to compete in the relay!”

“We wish to again thank our title sponsor MS Amlin and all main sponsors, Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, BF&M, BTA, NTT and Royal Gazette, for continuing their involvement in 2019. Without them this event would not be the success that it has become. We look forward to working with businesses across the island to engage in event-related activities for the benefit of all.”

IslandStats.com
Pro/Elite Triathletes including Bermuda’s For a Duffy rallied together to help raise much needed funds for a friend's son who has been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder.

Jodie Stimpson after learning that her physiotherapist’s son, Alfie (born on August 30th 2018) was diagnosed with the rare genetic disorder, MECP2 Duplication Syndrome – a rare neurological disorder affecting many areas of development, Stimpson, together with professional Triathlete Sophie Coldwell decided to help.

Learning about research being undertaken in Houston, Texas into a possible cure for the condition, Stimpson and Coldwell decided to raise much-needed some funds.

“With the help of the other Great Britain girls, Stimpson and Coldwell ran a competition to win signed Tri Suits including one from Duffy,” Stimpson wrote on her Facebook page at the time, prompting a call-to-action from the wider Triathlon Community.

And so, the Alfie’s Dream(#AlfiesDream) raffle began, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going towards Alfie’s Dream and the MECP2 Duplication Syndrome.

Stimpson and Coldwell were hoping to raise some 2,000.00 when they started,” explains Stimpson. “We were over $13,900.00 with four days before the draw, which was pretty amazing and the support of the triathlon community and everyone had really been heartwarming.

The prize list included items such as Lucy Charles’ tri suit, Flora Duffy’s Race Suit, Helen Jenkins’ Rio cycle top and Asics shoes, a Super League package worth over $262.00, an Asics winter bundle, a Sailfish wetsuit.
