Si riparte con ITU World Triathlon Stockolm

Si riparte con ITU World Triathlon Stockolm

La Formula 1 del triathlon mondiale, l’ITU World Triathlon Series, torna in Europa per la sua penultima tappa: sabato 26 agosto 2017 si corre l’ITU World Triathlon Stockolm, l’ultimo appuntamento prima della Grand Final di Rotterdam.

La prova di triathlon olimpico svedese metterà in palio punti fondamentali per giocarsi fino alla fine le chance di arrivare in cima al Rank WTS (e quindi vincere il titolo iridato), che vede attualmente in testa Flora Duffy (Bermuda) e Mario Mola (Spagna).

Assenti il pentacampeon Javier Gomez e il sudafricano Richard Murray (rispettivamente 2° e 3° nella graduatoria generale), l’altro portacolori della “Tri-Armada” Fernando Alarza ha la possibilità di rifarsi dopo le ultime sfortunate uscite e sopravanzarli e di rendere la vita difficile al leader Mola.

Due volte vincitore e poi sempre sul podio a Stoccolma, l’inglese Jonathan Brownlee, anche senza il supporto di suo fratello Alistair (out per un’operazione all’anca fino a fine 2017), vuole tornare assoluto protagonista.

Altri attesi favoriti per la lotta per il podio sono il norvegese Kristian Blummenfelt, l’altro brit Thomas Biship, il sudafricano Henri Schoeman, il kiwi Ryan Syssons, il francese Pierre Le Corre e lo slovacco Richard Varga, che vuole essere per la 32^ volta consecutiva il primo triatleta a uscire dall’acqua!

Tra le donne, le rivali di Duffy, alla ricerca della 5^ vittoria stagionale, sono numerose, a partire dall’australiana Ashleigh Gentle che proprio nella precedente tappa, a Montreal, è riuscita nell’impresa di cogliere la sua prima vittoria in WTS.

Da tenere d’occhio ci saranno anche la statunitense Katie Zaferes, capitana della compagine a stelle e strisce in attesa del rientro dell’aliena Gwen Jorgensen (che nel frattempo ha dato alla luce il suo primogenito Stanley Allen); la neozelandese Andrea Hewitt; le britanniche Jodie Stimpson, Jessica Learmonth, Lucy Hall e India Lee.

E anche l’azzurra Alice Betto, al rientro nel circuito dopo un periodo di altura e determinata a mostrare un’ulteriore crescita, dopo aver dimostrato di essere tornata a livelli mondiali nelle prime due frazioni e aver conquistato anche uno storico podio nella tappa di Leeds, oltre che un bronzo nei Campionati Europei.

Ci saranno al via altri due azzurri, Ilaria Zane, 20^ nell’ITU World Triathlon Hamburg, e Gianluca Pozzatti, reduce dal 2° in Coppa Europa nel triathlon di Wuuswezel.

COURSE PROFILE

Swim – 1500m – Start at the pontoon at Riddarfjärden (City Hall). There are two laps to swim. The first lap is 1000 meters and the second is 500 meters. The first turn is in 480m. They will exit via stairs on the side of the start pontoon. The water temperature in Riddarfjärden at the end of August can be expected to be roughly 18-20°C.

Bike – 40km – Generally flat profile with the exception of the Palace hill. There is an initial 4,6 km from transition to the Palace, followed by nine laps of 4,0 km to ride, so a total of 40,6 km The route is technically demanding, due to many changes of direction and tight turns. Generally good tarmac, but some cobble stones around the Palace. Athletes who are lapped are taken out of the race. The “first runner, last biker”-scenario is applicable for this event. In this case the biker will be taken off the course.

Run – 10km – Generally flat course except of the Palace hill. There are four laps of 2.5km to run. Surface mostly tarmac and cobble stones.
