Wildcard Reveal: Experience and Power In One Package
Blummenfelt’s aggressive style of racing has made him a firm fan favourite in the sport and produced some thrilling results.
Also confirmed today is another star from British triathlon’s talent pool with 2016 Olympic Bronze medalist Vicky Holland joining fellow Brits Georgia Taylor-Brown and Sophie Coldwell in the women’s wildcard field.
Blummenfelt and Holland will battle it out with the rest of their rivals on 28-29 September as triathlon’s most exciting race Series kicks-off for a new season.
The line-ups consist of the top ten Ranked Athletes from last season, nine Qualifiers and a handful of Wildcards selected to ensure the most exciting racing possible.

Watch out for Holland’s fast swim starts and blistering transition times that could help her improve on her overall seventh place finish at SLT Jersey in 2018.
