Beaugrand, Blummenfelt absent from round two of Super League Triathlon

Starting this afternoon (Friday) with the Individial Time Trial (Swim) element of ‘The Equalizer’, here is the full start list for the Elite athlete racing at Super League Triathlon Malta.

Several notable athletes are missing from Race One in the 2018/19 season last month in Jersey, including Cassandra Beaugrand (FRA) who was second in the Women’s event, and fourth-placed Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR) for the men.

“I would love to race them all, but I need to get some training done as well”, posted Blummenfelt yesterday on Instagram, currently training in Sierra Nevada.

A significantly reduced British entry too, with only Jodie Stimpson and Jonathan Brownlee scheduled to race, meaning no Alex Yee, Georgia Taylor-Brown, Vicky Holland, Sophie Coldwell or Kate Waugh who all raced in St. Helier.

Vincent Luis (FRA) will likely start as the favourite once again, with Henri Schoeman (RSA), Richard Murray (RSA) and Jonathan Brownlee likely to be his closest challengers. No Mario Mola this time either – perhaps he is looking to keep his powder dry for his home race in Mallorca next weekend?

The absence of the fast running Beaugrand would seem to further cement the prospects of Katie Zaferes (USA), who was so impressive in Jersey in both 2017 and 2018. Will she continue her unbeaten run in Super League Triathlon? That’s certainly where this Editor would be putting his money.
