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 exciting, since the options are completely open so that any triathlete of the top 10 can get the world title.
Only 2 athletes have repeated podium this season
Highlight, 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 discard the bad test positions in Leeds, Yokohama and Bermuda (29, 29 and 26)
In a season without a clear dominator, Fernando Alarza he is being the most regular, where he has always been in Top 10 positions, with a podium in Abu Dhabi, 2 sixth places and two ninths.
Vicent Luis, Second of 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 race so they can try to improve their worst result at the moment, a sixth for Luis and a fourth for Noya.
|In my opinion||Bicsák||2348|
3 tests remain, 2 in sprint distance and one in Olympic
We remember that the score is based on adding the 5 best performances of the circuit and the position that is made in the Grand Final of Lausanne (Switzerland).
With these data, everything is very open, since with 3 competitions still to be contested, 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 not having a rival and has won in four of the 5 races played to date. Abu Dhabi, Bermuda, Yokohama, Montreal and a second place in Leeds that give 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 arrive as a leader in the Grand Final, where he will have many options to get his first world title.
Hamburg the next appointment
The next appointment of the WTS will be in Hamburg (Germany) next Saturday also on sprint distance.
