Javier Gómez Noya will play his first triathlon of the year on Saturday in Mooloolaba (Australian east coast) scoring for the World Cup. It should be clarified that currently the World Cup is the second-tier circuit, below the World Championship that will start in Sydney on April 10.
In Mooloolaba Javi has already competed successfully, when the World Cup was the first stage of tests: 2007 (2nd) and 2008 (1st).
However, on Saturday he will meet people of a high level, such as the Australians Kahlefeldt (1st in 2007 and 2nd in 2008) and Atkinson, the French Hauss and Vidal and other local triathletes who will go all out.
On the Spanish side, Iván Raña and Ramón Ejeda will also compete. Being residing in Brisbane, just 40km away, he will make the trip with his coach the same day and will hardly break the routine ahead of the appointment in Sydney.
"I have recovered well from the long journey and have been able to do quality sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm going to go out and win, but of course it's not going to be easy. In addition to the acquaintances, there are several Australians and New Zealanders very fit, who play their place in the World Cup team here".
The triathlon starts at 3PM local, 5AM Spanish
