This is a preview feature written ahead of WTCS Cagliari. We said pre-race that Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee would start as race favourite, and they duly delivered.

Believe it or not, it’s not just the IRONMAN World Championship taking place this week in Elite triathlon.

Having had something of a mid-season break since the last race in Hamburg, WTCS racing returns on Saturday for the first of three races to decide the 2022 World Triathlon champions at World Triathlon Championship Series Cagliari in Sardinia, Italy.

Who’s NOT racing?

The big names not racing are Flora Duffy (BER) and Hayden Wilde (NZL). Currently sitting second and first respectively in the rankings, their absence opens the door a little for others.

In the case of Flora, hands up, I got that prediction wrong – I was convinced she would be racing in Italy. What does / could that mean?

Series leader Georgia Taylor-Brown can only improve her standings by winning, as her four scoring results to date are 1st / 1st / 2nd / 2nd. A win would see her improve to 3925, only 75 short of the maximum possible ahead of the Championship Finals in Abu Dhabi.

IF she was to do that, the maximum points that Flora can start in Abu Dhabi with (assuming she wins at home in Bermuda), is 3856. That would leave a points difference of 69.
