Seth Rider is a late entrant into the 2021 Super League Triathlon Championship Series – and made it count as he proved to be one of the surprise packages and pick up a bonus $20,000 for winning the green cycling jersey. The up and coming American scored his best back-to-back weekends of racing at elite level just weeks before the start of the Series. He kicked it off by taking a gold as part of the USA team in the Mixed Relay at WTCS Montreal. He followed it up a week later with his best ever individual placing at that level with fourth in WTCS Edmonton.
Seth, who comes from Tennessee, followed in the footsteps of his two older brothers by starting life in the pool as a swimmer. However, that didn’t last too long and Seth raced his first triathlon aged just six. It remained a hobby as Seth was growing up until he reached 14, where, realising he had some serious talent, he fully committed to the sport and made a big impact at youth level.
In 2014 Seth raced in the ITU Junior World Championship and then the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China, where he finished 12th in the individual event and sixth with the USA Mixed Relay team. A year later he was crowned USA Triathlon Junior Champion. By 2018 Seth was making his way at elite level and picked up a bronze at the Clermont CAMTRI Sprint Triathlon American Cup, before finishing third at the ITU Under-23 Mixed Relay World Championship in 2019.
That raw speed has seen him become a decorated member of Team USA’s Mixed Relay squad and sets him up well for Super League, along with hitting form at just the right time.
