  • 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.

    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.

    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 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.
