Sunday’s race in Edmonton features strong competitors from the USA, but Canada will miss home favourite and double Olympic medallist, Simon Whitfield, who has withdrawn due to injury.
Don continues his busy racing schedule, which saw him compete at the GE Canary Wharf triathlon last week. He goes into a rematch with Jarrod Shoemaker (USA), who narrowly beat him in Canary Wharf.
London 2012 Olympians, Manuel Huerta (USA) and Kyle Jones (Canada) are likely to amongst the key contenders, but Britain’s Adam Bowden, Mark Buckingham and Matt Gunby will fancy their chances. Loughborough based Jordanian athlete, Lawrence Fanous is also racing.
In the Netherlands, Tom Bishop is part of the British team at the Holten ITU Triathlon Premium European Cup. The ITU World Junior and U23 medallist will race alongside his twin brother, David and Phil Wolfe in the standard distance event.
