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!

Watch the short video above for the complete start list.
