Hawley Comments Following Mexico World Cup
Yesterday on the same day of the Bermuda Triathlon Association’s Olympic Distance National Championships, albeit too late to be copied, www.islandstats.com reported Erica Hawley competed in Mexico.
Hawley raced in the World Cup in Huatulco, Mexico and finished 18th.
Today we bring you comments that Hawley, “This was a great result for me and I am really pleased with how the race went. I was racing as part of the International Triathlon Union Team Asics Development Program which provides racing opportunities at various world cups this year.”
Hawley continued, “This has been an amazing opportunity for me as I was travelling alone and without my coach and they provided me with endless support.”
“I came out of the water in 9th place just 10 seconds behind the first 8. Our “chase” pack quickly caught on to the leaders and we were a big pack of 20+ for the rest of the bike. I had a pretty decent run but did suffer on the 2nd lap of the run due to the heat,” continued Hawley.
Hawley concluded, “The course was quite tough with a small hill on the bike and the run and of course it was very hot in Mexico. This was a great start to the rest of my racing for the year and I am very happy with my progress from the last World Cup I did in March. This is only my second World Cup so I couldn't be happier with how the race went for me today. I gained ITU points and Olympic points which was the goals. Still lots to work on but progression being made.”

Bermuda Age Group New Points Series 2018
With the XL Catlin Bermuda National Olympic Distance Championship event taking place this weekend Sunday June 10th, the Bermuda Triathlon Association (BTA) is excited to announce that the Bermuda races this year are to be made into a race series, WTS-style.
The series will be made up of the XL Catlin event, as well as the Tokio, Aon, Bank of Bermuda and Home Event races to find the overall Bermuda Triathlon Series Champion.
The aim is for this to become a prestigious award to encourage participation and excellence over the whole season, and accordingly there will be some great prizes on offer for the Series winners, to be awarded at the end-of-season dinner.
Prizes will be awarded to the overall winner in the Men’s and Women’s categories, together with winners in each of the usual age groups. As in the individual races, those winning overall prizes will not be eligible also to win their age groups.
How will the points system work? Points will be given to the top 30 individual finishers in each race. Points will also be awarded for the Age Group categories to the top 10 individuals finishing in each Age Group.
Points will also be awarded for those racing in the Home Events, so there is ample opportunity to pick up points!
The Age Group category is separate from the Overall category. Home Event points count towards the Overall category only.
