Dye Gains Pole Position With Super League Saturday Time Trial

Saturday 18 March 2017
Athletes scorched the tarmac this morning in the Stage 1 individual time trial of the Equalizer at Super League Hamilton Island. Cameron Dye (#08) laid down the fastest bike split, with a provisional time of 9 minutes and 40 seconds over the six-kilometer bike course starting from Hamilton Island Airport all the way up to One Tree Hill.

In the final 1.4 kilometres of the Equalizer time trial course, athletes were grinding uphill on ascents with a maximum gradient of 24.4 percent, gaining 121 metres in elevation.

While Dye finished in 18th place yesterday in the Triple Mix format, thanks to his stage win in the Equalizer he will now go first in this afternoon’s Stage 2 swim-run-swim-bike-run. The rest of the athletes will follow according to their finish times in a pursuit format. Yesterday’s overall leader Richard Murray (#07) will start 20 seconds back in seventh position. Mario Mola (#03) and Javier Gomez (#01) are separated by just one second in tenth and 11th place respectively. Alistair Brownlee (#23) is way back in 17th place. Dmitry Polyanskiy (#77) will have his work cut out for him as he will start last.

Once the first swimmer out of the second swim mounts his bike, a 60-second countdown will begin. Any athletes who have not mounted their bikes when that time runs out are eliminated. There is one minute and six seconds separating the fastest and slowest athletes, so there is a chance a few athletes could be pulled out of the race after the second swim in Stage 2.

Legendary Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe has been present to watch all the racing action unfold, and he watched the time trial keenly.

He said, “Yesterday’s race was exciting and somewhat unpredictable, and I think because of this morning’s time trial it’s helped to even things up.” The five-time Olympic gold medalist continued, “Super League Triathlon has its advantages that it’s kind of entertainment sport with its origins in triathlon. I think it’s a great way for new audiences to engage with triathlon.”

Stage 2 of the Equalizer broadcasts live on www.superleaguetriathlon.com on March 18 at 1630 AEST.

Osborne, Poor win XTERRA Germany

Osborne, Poor win XTERRA Germany

Monday 21 Aug 2017 [Triathlon News]

There’s a habit forming here in Europe as Osborne and Poor won for the second straight week, this time in the Saxony mountains. The forecast all week was doom and gloom. They called for rain on Friday at 17:00 (5pm), and rain all day on Saturday. It never came on Friday until about 23:00 (11pm) and it came hard. At the venue a bunch of expo tents were ripped from the ground and tossed meters away. But as quickly as the storm came – it went. Race day morning was cool and cloudy but no rain. more
