Duffy Women's Best of 2018 Bike Breakaway

While the New Year is in full effect, the anticipation for the upcoming 2019 Triathlon season is rapidly approaching!

However, before we dive too deep into the year and we start gearing up for all of the action that is expected to unfold, we want to take a look back into the 2018 season and honour all of the impressive accomplishments, stats, moments and performances that made the year so epically thrilling!

So drumroll please, the category is…. BIKE BREAKAWAY!

Linking Flora Duffy to dominating bike performances is not a new connection.

In fact, the Bermudian and two-time WTS World Champion is famous for her strength and tenacity in the cycle.

But in 2018 and her showcase in Bermuda was next-level inspiring. She started the race coming out of the water first and busted through the first Transition onto the 1500-metre course.

While she started out with someone on her tail, it was her first push on corkscrew hill where she blasted off. Duffy couldn’t be touched, she was unstoppable and impressively rode a full 38.38 KM by herself.

She rode with a speedy average pace of 36.072KM/HR to make ultimately finish with a lead of 58 seconds over the chase behind her. She then went on to win the race, which was a memorable moment for everyone who witnessed it since she was in front of her home crowd.

Bermuda World Triathlon Series Issue Photographer RFP

Bermuda is preparing to host the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Triathlon Series Bermuda for a second time.

On Saturday April 27th, 2019 Hamilton will be the venue once again for the televised international sporting event, with the signature blue carpet finish line on Front Street.

“The Local Organizing Committee of World Triathlon Bermuda (WTSBDA) invites photographers to register their interest to provide a full service participant photography service for the event. A Request for Proposal (RFP) has been published online and is available Here Request For Proposal (RFP) WTS Bermuda 2019
,” the organizers said.

“The RFP states that WTSBDA requires the photography provider to produce and execute a strategy to photograph every race entrant in all Age Group categories during each stage of their race and as they cross the finish line. Those photos should be made available for sale online to participants within 24 – 72 hours of their finish time, searchable by name and bib number.”

WTSBDA spokesperson and Chief Product and Experiences Development Officer of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, Pat Phillip-Fairn said; “We encourage all interested local photographers to submit their details for this opportunity, even those who do not think they meet all the criteria of the RFP. We may need additional photographers and would like to know who is available. We ask that they submit using the same online process as the RFP.”

Phillip-Fairn said; “We’re pleased to see the economic and ongoing benefits of hosting a world-class international event in Bermuda again being realized. This is an excellent opportunity for some of the island’s best photographers to work at international standards right here at home.”

The MS Amlin World Triathlon 2019 will be hosted in Hamilton on April 27th, 2019. It is the second of three annual World Series Triathlon events that Bermuda will host; in 2021 the island will be home to the ITU Grand Final and Age Group World Championships.

Phillip-Fairn explained, “Everyone in Bermuda can participate in the MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda Festival Weekend; as a racer, a volunteer or as a spectator.

She said, “We look forward to seeing many local relay teams; corporate groups and friends who are running, cycling and swimming enthusiasts. It’s not necessary to be a triathlete to compete in the relay!”

“We wish to again thank our title sponsor MS Amlin and all main sponsors, Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, BF&M, BTA, NTT and Royal Gazette, for continuing their involvement in 2019. Without them this event would not be the success that it has become. We look forward to working with businesses across the island to engage in event-related activities for the benefit of all.”

Duffy Offers Signed Tri Suit for Dream A Little Dream Cause

Pro/Elite Triathletes including Bermuda’s For a Duffy rallied together to help raise much needed funds for a friend's son who has been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder.

Jodie Stimpson after learning that her physiotherapist’s son, Alfie (born on August 30th 2018) was diagnosed with the rare genetic disorder, MECP2 Duplication Syndrome – a rare neurological disorder affecting many areas of development, Stimpson, together with professional Triathlete Sophie Coldwell decided to help.

Learning about research being undertaken in Houston, Texas into a possible cure for the condition, Stimpson and Coldwell decided to raise much-needed some funds.

“With the help of the other Great Britain girls, Stimpson and Coldwell ran a competition to win signed Tri Suits including one from Duffy,” Stimpson wrote on her Facebook page at the time, prompting a call-to-action from the wider Triathlon Community.

And so, the Alfie’s Dream(#AlfiesDream) raffle began, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going towards Alfie’s Dream and the MECP2 Duplication Syndrome.

Stimpson and Coldwell were hoping to raise some 2,000.00 when they started,” explains Stimpson. “We were over $13,900.00 with four days before the draw, which was pretty amazing and the support of the triathlon community and everyone had really been heartwarming.

The prize list included items such as Lucy Charles’ tri suit, Flora Duffy’s Race Suit, Helen Jenkins’ Rio cycle top and Asics shoes, a Super League package worth over $262.00, an Asics winter bundle, a Sailfish wetsuit.

Bermuda Highlighted 3 Times in Triathlon Review

Between February and November, the Triathlon and Multisport world was once again treated to non-stop action, with superb racing showcased across ITU World Triathlon Series, World Cup, Mixed Relay, Paratriathlon, Major Games and Mulitsport Festival events.

The year was jam-packed with nail-biting finishes, inspirational courage, career milestone-makers and landmark global events.

While it is hard to narrow all of the excitement down to just ten moments, Triathlon.org hand-picked the Top ITU Moments of 2018 as those season snapshots that stood out the most and helped make this one of the best seasons yet! Bermuda is highlighted three times in the 2018 Top ITU Moments.

Whether you were at April's WTS Bermuda in person or watching on TriathlonLive.tv, you will know just how loud the crowd and electric the atmosphere was for the race. It didn't hurt that hometown hero Flora Duffy absolutely CRUSHED the women's event, essentially racing solo for the majority of the Olympic-distance course. We can still hear the crowd's cheers as she took the finish tape!

The inaugural WTS Bermuda race was historical for several reasons, but one of the great moments saw Norway become the first country ever to manage a clean-sweep of a Men's WTS podium. Casper Stornes produced a killer breakaway performance to win his first WTS Gold, before compatriots Kristian Blummenfelt and Gustav Iden joined in with the Silver and Bronze.

The 2018 Triathlon season was HUGE for showcasing the sport on some of the World's Biggest Sports Stages, with three Major Games events this year. The first was the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, where Flora Duffy (BERMUDA) and Henri Schoeman (RSA) won the Individual events and Paratriathlon and Mixed Relay events were also held.
