International Triathlon Union World Triathlon Series Comes To Madrid

Posted: Jun. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Madrid will be hosting the 4th race in The International Triathlon Union World Triathlon Series. This is the first European location this season, and said to be the toughest yet. The cold and wet weather has slowed down preparation, but the competition is warming as countries find their 2013 triathlon champion lineup.

The International Triathlon Union World Triathlon Series hits Europe for the first time this season with Madrid (Spain) hosting race 4 of the 8 race search to find the 2013 World Champions.

The move to Europe has signalled the biggest and highest quality fields of the season with the New Zealanders knowing they are facing the biggest odds of the season so far in their quest for vital championship points and experience on the toughest triathlon stage.

Andrea Hewitt (Christchurch), Kate McIlroy (Wellington), Nicky Samuels (Wanaka), Ryan Sissons (Auckland), Tony Dodds (Wanaka) and Bryce McMaster (Auckland) will line up on Sunday (NZT) with Tri NZ National Coach Greg Fraine saying Madrid is another step in a busy season.
