Great Britain’s Alistair Brownlee has high hopes for a busy racing schedule next season, after the double Olympic Champion raced the most times in a year since 2019 this season.

The 35 year old, who finished on back-to-back podiums on his return to racing in October, underwent ankle surgery to remove a bone spur in the summer and appears finally to be past a difficult period of injuries that have trouble him in recent seasons.

Despite making a short but successful switch to gravel and XTERRA racing during his time rehabilitating this year, during which he won XTERRA Weston Park, Brownlee appears to be fully committed to long distance triathlon ahead of an exciting 2024.


“I’m grateful that I get to continue doing the sport I love”

Having recently been elected the new Chair of the European Olympic Committees Athlete’s Commission, Brownlee made it clear in a recent Instagram post that his focus would still firmly be on long course triathlon next year.

“I’m extremely thankful for my sponsors, my team and everyone who has supported me this year. I’m grateful that I get to continue to do the sport that I love going into what looks to be a very exciting year for professional triathlon!”

Additionally, the short course legend, who won the last of his Olympic titles in 2016, shared that he now has some hard months of training ahead of him as he prepares for much more racing in 2024.

“Five races to reflect on in 2023, not as many as I had originally hoped for but I’m excited to put the work in over the next few months for a busier 2024!”

This season, Brownlee raced at the PTO Tour European Open in Ibiza, where he finished in sixth, before ankle surgery led to an extended period off during the summer. Upon his return, the Yorkshireman raced middle distance events in Barcelona, Mallorca, Vieux Boucau and Bahrain.
