  • 2020: What to expect

    The Olympics will undoubtedly be the highlight of the year with many HUUB athletes taking the trip over to Tokyo. The qualification period for the Olympic games finishes in May 2020 after Yokohama WTS meaning it is still all to play for in terms of qualification. The first three WTS races, Abu Dhabi, Bermuda and Yokohama, will be pivotal for those seeking selection so we can expect some intense racing in the early part of the year.

  • HUUB Wattbike

    HUUB Wattbike left for Australia in high spirits at the beginning of December, giving them plenty of time to acclimatise (take a look at the HUUB Wattbike Instagram account) to the 30°C and above heat.

    The first two rounds of the UCI Track World Cup might not have gone exactly to plan, but Brisbane has always been the focus. Ashton Lambie is making his return from duties with USA cycling. Form and morale are at an all-time high, and the guys are riding faster than they ever have before.

  • David McNamee

    The IRONMAN World Championship in Kona has created some legends of the sport and in some peoples view it is the very pinnacle of sporting endeavour. This year’s edition is set to be one of the greatest we have ever witnessed.

    The start list for the men’s and women’s races boast Olympic Champions, World Champions and World record holders across all distances of triathlon, setting up an incredible battle between the very best the sport has seen over the last decade (and perhaps lifespan) of the sport.

    HUUB’s greatest hopes lie in double Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee (GBR) and David McNamee (GBR) who has finished 3rd in 2017 and 2018, but they will certainly not have an easy run!

  • The Ironwar: 30 years on

    Thirty years ago, at the Ironman World Championships, Dave Scott and Mark Allen had an epic battle. Most people know the peripheral story, but no one knows the details of each of their lives in the year-long buildup to this race, or the real race story.

  • Alistair Brownlee

    The spectacular course in Nice attracted stars from both the ITU and long course circuit and was the perfect test for both types of athletes. Alongside the PRO men and women, thousands of Age Group athletes also headed to the south of France to try and claim a World title on a somewhat unconventional championship course.

  • Alistair Brownlee

    HUUB's Alistair Brownlee (GBR) will start as one of the favourites in the men's race after finishing a close second last year. The double Olympic Champion looks to have had a better build-up to the Championships this year so we will hope to see him full of racing come Sunday.
