ITU World Champs. Go Matt!

Lifecycle's Matt Hopper will be competing for the Australian team in the Triathlon World Championships in Hamburg this weekend.

Matt runs to a 5th place finish in Switzerland

Matt is hoping for a good personal result in this event which is an important build up for the 2008 Olympic games. Matt will be hoping to capitilise on his current good form and recent 5th place finish in Geneva.

Unlike many amateur events the Triathlon World Championships are a draft legal event. This allows riders to form bunches and ride the bike leg much more like a road race then a time trial. As a result team tactics can really come in to play with riders working for their team mates (and opponents) to get themselves in a good position for th run leg.

Everyone at Lifecycle wishes Matt all the best for the weekend racing and we will update you with all the results as soon as they come to hand.
