As part of the British Triathlon pathway, athletes are part of national squads with the opportunity to represent Great Britain at European in junior championships.
Northumberland’s Daniel Dixon has raced for Great Britain a number of times at events across Europe in his young career. With junior podium finishes from Junior European Championships, including second in Kitzbühel this year, as well as victories at youth and junior level in Super League Triathlon racing, Dixon has plenty of experience despite his age.
This year has seen him race at the 2021 Europe Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships Kitzbühel where he won individual silver and came 4th in the relay with Beth Cook, Daisy Davies and Matt Howard, as well as race in the French Grand Prix in Metz.
At the weekend, Dixon will be competing in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary as junior and senior athletes come together for their respective Europe Triathlon Cup races.
