The ferrolano returns to the Life Time Series to compete in the US Open on October 2
Global icon of triathlon, Javier Gómez Noya returns to the Americas once his season in the World Championship of the International Federation (ITU) has finished. After some commitments this weekend in Spain, he travels to the United States to compete in the closing of the Life Time Series, the North American circuit. The two-time world champion will participate on October 2 at the US Open in Dallas.
Recently proclaimed champion of Spain for the fourth time, Gómez Noya is fulfilling these days with two commitments in Spain. Yesterday he inaugurated the store in Madrid of the American multinational Specialized, his bicycle sponsor, and today he is attending another event at the Water Sports Center in Calella, where he participated in a two-week rally shortly before traveling to the World Cup final in Beijing .
Back in Pontevedra, Gómez Noya will train for a few days with a view to the Dallas event. The man from Ferrol will travel on Thursday, September 29, and will compete three days later in Texas. He will participate in a US Open that closes the Life Time Series, the North American circuit, in which he has no points for now.
It is not the first time that Gómez Noya has competed in the United States. In addition to the Des Moines (Iowa) events that were part of the ITU calendar, he also participated twice in the Los Angeles triathlon, where he came first in 2009 and second in 2010. When he planned to compete in the prestigious event from Dallas, fell ill.
Triathlon events in the United States do not follow ITU rules. One of its singularities is that the participants cannot go on a wheel in the cycling sector. After the appointment in Dallas, the man from Ferrol will be invited to Hawaii to witness Iron Man as a spectator. Later, he doubts whether to go to a World Cup appointment in Tongyeong (South Korea) or fulfill other commitments.
