With the sixth place achieved yesterday in the WTS Montreal Fernando Alarza rises to the first place in the world ranking with 3.282 points, ahead of 82 points to second place Vicent Luis , which has one race less.
We're seeing a WTS season very excitingSince the options are totally open for any top 10 triathlete to get the world title.
Only 2 athletes have repeated podium this season
Note that only 2 athletes have repeated podium this season, Mario Mola with his victory in Abu Dhabi and second place in Edmonton and Javier Gómez Noya with second place in Bermuda and third place in Leeds.
If Mario continues to perform at this level, he will be able to rule out the bad positions of the tests in Leeds, Yokohama and Bermuda (29, 29 and 26)
In a season without a clear dominator, Fernando Alarza It is the most regular, where it has always been in the Top 10 positions, with a podium in Abu Dhabi, 2 sixth places and two ninth.
Vicent Luis, second in the ranking did not participate in this test has a victory in Yokohama, a fourth, fifth and sixth place.
Both Noya and Luis have a less competitive test so at the moment they can try to improve their worst result, a sixth place for Luis and a fourth for Noya.
|In my opinion||Bicsák||2348|
There are 3 tests, 2 in sprint distance and one in Olympic
We recall that the score is based on adding the 5 best performances of the circuit and the position made in the Grand Final in Laussane (Switzerland).
With these data, everything is very open, since with 3 competitions still to play, two in sprint distance and one in Olympic, (Hamburg, Edmonton and Laussane)
Katie Zaferes, already with 4 wins
In the female category, the North American triathlete Katie Zaferes he is having no rival and has achieved victory in four of the 5 races held to date. Abu Dhabi, Bermuda, Yokohama, Montreal and a second place in Leeds that give him 4.925 points
The second classified is Jessica Learmonth with 4.170 points followed by Georgia Taylor-Brown with 3.925. Taylor Spivey He is fourth with one less test, since he did not participate in Montreal.
Everything indicates that Zaferes will reach the Grand Final as the leader, where he will have many options to get his first world title.
