  • Sam Holness

    We're excited to announce our partnership with ‘Super’ Sam Holness, who recently launched his campaign to become the first autistic Ironman athlete. The three-year deal will not only provide the same world-leading triathlon and cycling equipment used by athletes Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee but will also include swim and bike aerodynamics and position testing and support.

    Additionally, HUUB has agreed to help Sam fundraise for causes supporting autistic, neurodiverse and BAME sports communities, areas of huge importance to Sam.

  • PTO World Championships

    The PTO Championships in Daytona took place over the weekend with Paula Findlay (CAN) and Gustav Iden (NOR) claiming victories. The attempt by the PTO to align the sport of triathlon with other major sports, by putting on a global event with a huge prize purse and world-wide media coverage seemed to be a success as the World’s best descended on Daytona International Speedway.

    The PTO championships are finally upon us and not only does it look set to be the biggest race of 2020, but it also looks to be one of the most competitive races in the history of the sport. With only a handful of names missing and the inclusion of some of the biggest ITU stars, this weekend will be the most comprehensive showdown of the long course athlete vs. the short course athlete we have ever seen.

    As soon as it became evident that we were going to see massively reduced racing schedules both on the ITU circuit and long-distance scene, eyes started to turn to the big payday event at the end of the year. With $1,150,000 on the line, we can expect to see some incredible racing on the Speedway in Daytona!

  • Race Review

    From no racing in months to a packed few days of racing all over Europe! The first and only round of the WTS took place in Hamburg, and with no other WTS events this year, it also meant that the winners would be crowned 2020 World Champions. HUUB's Georgia Taylor-Brown powered to the line and a superb first world title.

    Also taking place at the weekend were several 70.3 events featuring many HUUB athletes. It was a great day out in France for Fenella Langridge at the IRONMAN's Les Sables d'Olonne-Vendé 70.3. With the fastest swim and bike, she was leading until 15km into the run where she was eventually reeled in due to cramp, taking the bronze medal.  

    Back in the UK, the PTO supported race Helvellyn took place. Of those racing was Alistair Brownlee (GBR) who was doubling up with Hamburg WTS. Just 24 hours after racing WTS Hamburg he won the iconic mountain triathlon.

Hamburg will also host the Mixed Relay World Championships on Sunday, making it a whole weekend of racing to look forward to.

    This weekend also sees the first major long-distance races of 2020. As it stands, it looks like IRONMAN's Les Sables d'Olonne-Vendé 70.3 and Helvellyn Triathlon, a long-standing British race noted for its brutal course, are both set to go ahead. Both attracting a host of talent and HUUB athletes, including a certain Olympic Champion...

    HUUB are excited to officially welcome Fenella Langridge to the HUUB family. An athlete that stormed onto the middle distance scene in 2018, with three podiums from three IRONMAN 70.3 starts before taking her first victory at IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh. 2019 was another strong season for the breakthrough Brit, and we’re looking forward to what 2020 brings with her season starting at Challenge Salou towards the end of March.
