WTS Montreal: how the Brits stack up

Just two races stand between Vicky Holland and what could be her first-ever World Tri Series title. In what has been her most successful season to date, the 32-year-old Rio bronze medallist is currently second in the standings on 3579 point, 591 behind Series leader Katie Zaferes (USA). And with 1,000 up for grabs for the winner, and 1250 at the Grand Final, it’s all to play for in this coming Saturday’s Montreal race and the final event in Gold Coast on Saturday 15 September.


“I’m just taking it one race at a time,” said Holland on the phone the day before she flew out to Montreal. “Montreal’s a race I’ve not done before but I have noted the key areas, and will take a closer look at those when I get over there. I’ll hopefully then put together a race that I can be proud of.”

Despite a consistent season, which has included two wins (Leeds and Edmonton), the absence of the reigning and two-time world champion Flora Duffy (BER) in the second half of the season due to injury hasn’t gone unnoticed.
