Super Series comes to a grand finale

Published:

The 2023 British Triathlon Super Series came to a close last weekend at Mallory Park in Leicestershire with the series champions crowned as well as the annual Inter Regional Championships bringing athletes from across the country together.

The Super Series Grand Final brought the curtain down on the Youth, Junior, Senior, and Paratri Super Series’ on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September.

The two-day racing spectacular was the final opportunity to gain points in the series, but also provided Youth B, Junior and Senior athletes with the chance to be named British Elite Champion, and TriStar 2 and TriStar 3 athletes the chance to represent their region or nation in the Inter Regional Championships (IRCs).

Youth A

Annabelle Souter was crowned the Female Youth A series winner despite not racing in the Grand Final having already earned enough points across the series. Lauren Mitchell claimed fourth on the day to end the series with silver, whilst Patience Lamb’s eighth-place finish earned her overall bronze.

The Female Youth A race win was taken by French athlete Anouk Rigaud, with Eloise Foster and Carys Westcott taking second and third. French and Italian athletes joined Brits at Mallory Park for the development opportunity that the racing experience brings.

In Open Youth A, Arthur Ballard, Tristan Robin and William Pridden were the overall series podium at the end of the event, with Ballard’s fifth-place race result seeing him maintain his position at the top having come into the race leading.

Robin’s second on the day saw him jump into series silver, whilst Pridden’s race-day fourth earned him series bronze. Joining Robin on the podium were French athletes Leni Remer Mancini (first) and Eliot Delecroix (bronze).

Youth B

Having come into the event leading the Female Youth B series, Helena Coy took the category win on Saturday to cement top-spot and win the series. Youth B athletes were competing alongside the Junior and Senior athletes, with Coy crossing the line seventh in the race but four minutes ahead of the next Youth B athlete.

That athlete was Jessica Heeps who was closely followed by Talia Hughes. The pair took second and third respectively in the race and the overall series.

In the Open Youth B, Luke Holmes took the category win to jump ahead of Jasper Adamson in the overall series and take the title. Adamson, who wasn’t racing at Mallory, had enough points on the board to claim the series bronze, whilst Harry Maxwell’s fourth at the Grand Final brought him series silver.

On the day, Rory Bryant (silver) and Adam Fouchal (bronze) joined Holmes on the race day podium for Open Youth B athletes.

Junior

Heading to Mallory, Isla Hedley was at the top of the tree in the Female Junior standings, with Eve Whitaker and Antonia Jubb following behind.

On the day, it was Whitaker who not only took the category win but the race win as well amongst Youth B and Senior athletes, however category silver was enough for Hedley to ensure she returned home with the series win. Whitaker‘s win earned her the series silver, with Jubb’s category bronze bringing her series bronze to match.

In the Open Junior race, Pietro Giovannini out-paced the field to take the win on the day ahead of Oliver Conway and Christo Chiltern.

The close nature of the standings heading into the Grand Final meant that Conway’s silver saw him take the Junior Open Series crown, with Oliver Mills (who didn’t compete in the Grand Final) and Struan Bennet (eighth at the Grand Final) taking the overall silver and bronze positions.

Senior

With Female Senior series leader Sophia Green racing in the French Grand Prix, the door was open for others to snatch the title at the final race of the series.

A category first and second for Annabel Morton and Ellie White respectively, saw the pair overtake Green for first and second in the overall standings. Having racked up points across the series so far, Green had enough on the board to maintain a podium position and end the year third in the Female Senior series.

As with the other series’, the Open Senior was also very open and with all to race for at Mallory Park on Saturday.

Chris Perham, who led the series, raced to bronze on the day which gave him the points to stay ahead of the chasing pack. Jimmy Lund, second in the standings prior to Mallory, took silver on the day to ensure that overall silver was his, whilst a race-day win for Dom Coy brought him overall bronze.

The Youth B, Junior and Senior races doubled up as the British Elite Championships, meaning Coy left the event with another title to his name and saw Lund and Perham complete that particular podium. Whitaker (Female Junior) was crowned the Female British Elite Champion ahead of Morton (Female Senior) and Marion Latil (Female Junior).

Paratri

The Paratri Super Series final race of the season brought together athletes from across the classifications to compete in Mallory in search of the final points on offer.

Athletes had to compete in three races across the five-race series to be eligible for the overall series prizes, meaning not all athletes from Mallory or the series had met the criteria.

Due to the low water levels at Mallory, the paratriathlon racing was competed across a duathlon format for the safety of the athletes invovled.

Luke Applegate’s race win at Mallory saw him take top-spot in the Open PTWC classification, with Bret Crossley a close second and Darren Williams ending the series in third. Despite not racing at the Grand Final, Mel Nicholls was crowned the Female PTWC series champion.

In the Open PTVI series, Nathaniel Costigan took silver at Mallory Park with his guide Gregg McVickers, crossing the line behind Rhys Jones who was guided by Malachi Cashmore. Costigan’s result saw him crowned series champion.

The Open PTS2 category saw race winner and second-place finisher Jack Howitt and Ethan Dent also crowned series winner and runner up. The pair were separated by only one point heading into Mallory, so the race truly was winner takes all/

This was the same for the Open PTS3 which saw Henry Urand’s race win bring him the overall series title to match. Having got the better of Gavin Mclaughlin at the Super Series event at Eton Dorney and the Grand Final, Urand was crowned series winner with Mclaughlin finishing the year in second.

In the Open PTS4 series, Finley Jakes saw his series win confirmed at Mallory by taking the race win. Jakes had been unbeaten in the three races he’d already competed in, with the one race he missed a result of him competing in the World Triathlon Para Series in Swansea instead of the Super Series.

Michael Fox finished third at Mallory to take silver in the series behind Jakes, whilst Ben Molnar’s fourth on the day saw him end the series with bronze. In the Female PTS4 series, Hannah Moore took the overall win.

In the Female PTS5 category, Cheryl Went (first) and Megan Fergusson (second) ended the series that had seen them battle it out across all five races. Claiming her third race win, Went stood atop the series podium at Mallory.

A competitive Open PTS5 series concluded with Tom Barnard, who had an insurmountable lead heading to the Grand Final, crowned winner. Oliver Scott’s race win at Mallory saw him take home silver in the series, with Florian Combe’s race bronze brining him the overall bronze medal as well.

Inter Regional Championships

The IRCs brought together athletes from the English regions, Scotland, Wales and Jersey to compete in the multi-format competition.

In the Open TriStar 2 individual race, William Lambert, Kruze Frampton and Charlie Lyne raced their way to the podium, with Summer Smith, Olivia Lyne and Connie Rendell took the honours in the Female TriStar 2 race.

Aiden Turner, Ewan Sparey and Daniel Hendrey took the one-two-three in the Open TriStar 3 race, whilst the Female race saw Katy Otterson, Kitty Scott and Polly Kershaw take the podium places.

Alongside the racing, athletes took part in a skills-based transition challenge to earn points for their team. The North East were the highest point scorers in the Open challenge, ending with 615 points. In the Female challenge, the West Midlands scored 551 points to top the table.

The combined individual race results and transition challenge results formed the overall IRC table, with the North East taking the win ahead of the South West in second and Scotland in third.

The final standings from the IRCs are: East (fourth), East Midlands (fifth), London (sixth), West Midlands (seventh), Wales (eighth), Yorkshire (ninth), South East (tenth), South Central (eleventh), North West (twelfth) and Jersey (thirteenth).

With an electrical storm in the area, the action on Sunday and for the weekend was brought to an early end during the mixed relay racing on safety grounds.
