Ready to watch World Triathlon Series Edmonton?
Tomorrow (Saturday 29th July) sees the sixth round (of nine) of the 2017 World Triathlon Series reach Edmonton, Canada.
With the time difference to Canada from the UK (Edmonton seven hours ‘behind’ London), that means Saturday night viewing in the UK for triathlon fans.
Racing over the Sprint distance, the event will see Jonathan Brownlee start in only his third WTS event of the year. Having finished out of the point in Yokohama following a bike crash just before T2, he is effectively out of contention for World Championship contention this year, on the “best five results plus the Grand Final” scoring system.
That said, he is looking forward to getting back into racing action in what has been a truncated and frustrating season so far. “I was really disappointed to miss Hamburg, but I had to listen to doctors’ orders. I’m really happy to be in Edmonton and although I’m not certain how things will go, I know I’m feeling a lot better than I was!”
