Super League Triathlon Jersey: the men’s line up confirmed

Jersey local Dan Halksworth to race Super League Triathlon

Taking place from on 23rd/24th September in Jersey, the full start-lists for the men’s race of the second edition of Super League Triathlon have been announced.

The top three athletes from Super League Hamilton Island – Richard Murray (#07), Mario Mola (#03) and Jake Birtwhistle (#44) will all be present – and there will three British male athletes racing.

No Alistair Brownlee of course (he’s recovering from recent hip surgery), but Jonathan Brownlee (#05) looks set to make his Super League debut after missing the Hamilton Island event with injury. He’ll be joined by former World Junior Duathlon Champion and Youth Olympic Games Gold medal winner, Ben Dijkstra (#80).

The wild card is perhaps Dan Halksworth (#31). Twice a winner of IRONMAN UK, Dan has been quiet on the mainstream triathlon scene for a couple of years, though he has been racing well in cycling time trials and also representing Jersey in events including the Island Games. With his exceptional swim background plus bike fitness, he should be able to compete well over the short distances within the Super League events – though may well have been putting in some recent running intervals to rediscover the foot speed he might need on the run!

Jan Frodeno: “Sub-8 at Kona is possible”

The imposing surrounds of Tower Bridge, Central London played host last night to a highly impressive launch of a new shoe from ASICS, the Noosa FF™. ‘FF’ in this case refers to FlyteFoam™. In their words…

“Our FlyteFoam technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.”

Jan Frodeno talks…

Having flown in two-time and defending IRONMAN World Champion, Jan Frodeno, specially for the evening, we took the chance to grab some time with the undisputed king of men’s long-distance triathlon right now.

Jan talks about his mentally challenging Kona race of 2016, “nailing” Kona 2017, breaking records and why Super League Triathlon will produce “the ultimate sprinter”, rather than the ultimate athlete!

Super League Triathlon is the (relatively) new kid on the triathlon block, providing a fast-paced alternative which is made for TV audiences.

The exciting format features some of the world’s top short-course specialists – including the entire Great Britain Olympic team from Tokyo 2020. U.S. star Katie Zaferes is also a major player along with French stars Vincent Luis and Cassandre Beaugrand.

We could also get a cameo in 2021 with British long-distance superstar Lucy Charles-Barclay pondering an appearance at Malibu in late September.

The Championship Series kicks off in London on Sunday September 5, the first of four major events in a whirlwind month of action.

After Canary Wharf, the action moves on to Munich on Sunday September 12, and then Jersey on Saturday September 18. That Malibu finale goes down on Saturday September 25.

What is Super League Triathlon?

Like we said, it’s fast-pased and exciting – and there are five formats:

  • Eliminator: Three short triathlons, with the slowest competitors eliminated after each one. Fifteen go through to the second and 10 to the third and final race. The third and final race gives the final finishing order.
  • Triple Mix: Three short triathlons are raced but in different order each time. First up the usual swim-bike-run, then run-bike-swim and after that bike-swim-run. Athletes do get a 10-minute break between each.
  • Equalizer: A two-stage race with an individual cycling time trial followed by a swim-run-swim-bike-run.
  • Enduro: Three short triathlons in one long swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run race. The last two athletes into transition after each discipline go out.
  • Sprint Enduro: A random draw splits the field into team groups, before each group races a short triathlon. The first five from each half advance along with the two fastest finishers. Then we get a shorter enduro race consisting of two short triathlons.
