  • WTS Montreal

    This weekend sees the World Triathlon Series touch down in Montreal for the fifth round of the 2019 series. Katie Zaferes (USA) leads the women's rankings at the moment while Vincent Luis (FRA) is the men's series leader. The next round of the World Paratriathlon Series will also take place, and this is the first ranking event for Tokyo Paralympic qualification.

    In 2018 the elite races were contested over the Olympic distance, but this year the format has been changed to a sprint, featuring a more technical and challenging bike course as well a four-lap run which has a good chance of altering how the races will unfold.
