RBC Super League Jersey – A Surprise Prize For Our Juniors!

Super League will be continuing its proud promotion of the best young talent in triathlon by launching a new initiative that will see four Junior athletes handed the chance to compete against the sport’s biggest stars.

RBC Super League Triathlon Jersey 2019 will see an amazing 114 of the future heroes of swim-bike-run battle it out in the Youth and Junior races.

And the prize on offer is simply incredible.

The two top two finishers in both the Junior Boys and Junior Girls races will earn a place on the start line of the Semi-Finals of the Professional race. It is an incredible opportunity for four up and comers to get a taste of the big time, competing alongside the Pros they will previously have only seen on TV.

Once they are in the Pro field they will get the same opportunities as the established stars, meaning if they then finish in the top five in their semi-final, or record one of the five fastest times outside of those places, they will make it through to the Final.

They will also receive whatever prize money is on offer for their finishing place in the Final plus Championship Series points.

The Youth and Junior sections of Super League continue to grow, and Jersey’s flourishing triathlon scene means five locals are taking part – Lily Scott (Youth Girls), Jack Kennedy (Youth Boys), brothers William Atkinson (Youth Boys) and Thomas Atkinson (Youth Boys) and Adele Maher (Junior Girls).

The youngsters represent as much of a league of nations as the Pros do, with entrants coming from ten countries, including from as far away as Canada.

There are also six podium finishers from the Youth and Junior races in 2018 returning to try and take the glory again.

In the Youth Girls the entire podium of Isla Britton (Canada), Franca Heneseleit (Germany) and Eden Schiller (GB) are back to race it out again.

British duo Hamish Relly and Jack Stanton-Stock will be aiming to thrive again in the Youth Boys category, while another Brit, Sinead Clark, will return in the Junior Girls division.

Super League co-founder, and four-time World Champion, Chris McCormack said:

“Super League Triathlon was developed with the future in mind, giving Youth and Junior athletes the platform to focus and pursue a life in sport that is rewarding, professional and diverse.

“Our Youth and Junior racing is the stepping stone to developing as a professional triathlete. It’s a pathway that can fulfil an athletic dream and gives the opportunity to race and test themselves within the same formats and courses as our Professional athletes.

“Super League Triathlon is the Professional platform within the sport that will evolve to be the most important form of racing for many of them into the future.”
