Races › Super League Triathlon Bali 2019
The BCA Super League Triathlon Bali is coming to the stunning Ayodya Resort Bali, Indonesia, along the white sands of Nusa Dua! We will have something for everyone at the newest location in the SLT lineup. Regardless of your age or training level, we’ll support you in getting to the start line and across the finish line. This will be a race event weekend like no other, a true festival of multi-sport, celebrating everything that is good about endurance and competition.
The BCA Super League Festival will have it all – local established bands, up and coming acts, gourmet food and refreshment, and an atmosphere to rival any outdoor experience. Race in the morning, relax and enjoy the regions best in the afternoon, and party the night away on the beach in the evening. What could be better than a weekend of festivities in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet?!
Want to see how quickly these athletes can go solo with no drafting or pacing help? Then the Equalizer is for you! Favouring those with an aptitude for individual efforts, Stage 1 consists of an all-out solo time trial.
After one discipline is selected – either swim, bike or run – the athletes race it as a standalone event. It is called an Individual Time Trial (ITT). The times taken here will set the scene and provide gaps for Stage 2. Athletes who post good individual times in Stage 1 will be fighting hard to stay away from a charging main field over the SWIM-BIKE-RUN-SWIM-BIKE-RUN of Stage 2. Fastpack swimmers, bikers and runners will be battling to come through the field while those with a time advantage give their all to stay out front. The Equalizer will see the playing field levelled and racing in its purest form!

The Enduro is considered the most brutal format of all. Requiring endurance and tactics, the Enduro is a non-stop burst of swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run (9 continuous stages) without any break.
The added element of speed is tied into the race demands of The Enduro, with the slowest athlete at the end of each discipline being eliminated immediately. The easiest way to think about it is swim-bike-run repeated 3 times in a row without breaks in between.

The winner is the first athlete across the finish line upon completion of the entire race sequence.
