Bermuda Olympian and multiple World Champion Flora Duffy has been named the Triathlon Best Female Biker of 2017.
Over the rest of the month of January Triathlon.org will be naming the “Best of 2017” moments from the year, anything from overall athletes to top race performances to inspirational finishes because when you have a year like we just had, you have to celebrate it!
While 2017 was the year that Duffy proved her ability to be an all-around three sport triathlete, there is never denying what a powerhouse she is on the bike.
In almost every single WTS race she competed in this year she managed to create a breakaway advantage.
Riding in a bike pack isn’t her style and it’s because of her initiative that she could use her strength in the bike to create enough of a gap where she could excel then on the run and claim six WTS golds, including the World Championship crown for the second year in a row.
It’s not just on the Triathlon stage that she dominates as well, she also earned her fourth straight XTERRA World Crown in 2017, pointing out that she can also perform when she has some mud underneath her tires as well.
