The Super League features shorter races in five formats – Triple Mix, Eliminator, Equalizer, Sprint Endurance and Enduro – featuring shorter races than Olympic distance and offering £100,000 in prize money for men and women.
World champion Vicky Holland and Olympic medallist Jonny Brownlee did race in the Super League Triathlon in Jersey on the weekend of 28-30 Sept. 2018. Jonny Brownlee competed against five-time World Triathlon Series champion Javier Gomez, fellow compatriot and current world champion Mario Mola and defending Super League champion Richard Murray.
Triple Mix follows the traditional format swim-bike-run, followed by a run-bike-swim, then bike-swim-run, with 10-minute breaks between each phase. Eliminator features three rounds of swim-bike-run, with 10 racers eliminated in the first round and five more in the second to leave a top 10 racing for the title in a final round.
Jersey was the first of five races in this year’s Super League, which is in its second season. It will be followed by
- Malta on 28-29 October 2018
- Mallorca on 3-4 November 2018
- Singapore on 23-24 February 2019
Two-time Olympic gold medallist Alistair Brownlee, Jonny’s older brother, said: “It’s great to kick off the Super League Triathlon season close to home. There was such a great crowd in Jersey last year; this new format of triathlon makes for some great racing and is really entertaining to watch, so I’m excited for a big turnout and to see what I can do in September.”
