Birtwhistle Wins Another WTS

Recommended Posts

Birtwhistle is having a fantastic season. He won his 2nd WTS race in 4 weeks at Hamburg. He beat both Mola and Gomez. He should be a contender next year at the Olympics if he stays injury free.

Not Mola and Gomez he needs to worry about anymore. But beating Vincent Luis is impressive.

Last  leg, Jake has about 10-15secs to make up on bike and leg. Going to be a cracking finish.

Hahaha, don't even joke about it. 

I just read he is the first male this season to win 2 WTS races. Also is the first Aus male in history to achieve 2 wins in one season.

Not sure of Spirig's longevity, but 5 x Olympics covers 16 years, so you'd also need a top year beforehand to qualify, so at least 17 years at top level anyway. That's a hell of a career.

First on the ITU scene in 1998 at Junior Euro Champs. Rory Junior champ '99 and World junior Champ '00. That's over 20 years at the top level and uber impressive.

Edmonton WTS this weekend. Blast from the past, Emma Jackson has taken the win. Gentle in 3rd. Top females not racing however.

Still a well earned win, good to have some Aus women racing well, has been a slow season to get started.

That win should guarantee Jackson automatic selection until at least 2032.
