Brownlee, Taylor-Brown and Beaugrand All Confirmed For supertri E World Triathlon Championship powered by Zwift

March 7, 2024

LONDON, UK/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – British stars Jonny Brownlee and Georgia Taylor-Brown will make their only major UK appearance before the Paris Olympics as they headline the supertri E World Triathlon Championship in London on April 13.

Brownlee is at the start of a year that is likely to see him compete in a fourth Olympic Games in Paris and go in search of a fourth medal. Double Olympic medallist Taylor-Brown, meanwhile, will face off at the London Aquatic Centre with French star Cassandre Beaugrand. The pair are expected to go head-to-head for the individual gold in the summer.

supertri E World Triathlon Championship powered by Zwift is one of sport’s most innovative, entertaining and award winning formats. It blends real life and virtual racing and featured at the IOC’s Olympic Esports Week. Athletes race in packed arenas with their efforts on the bike and run realised in a virtual race environment with a compelling broadcast product delivering a new generation of Esports fans and pure in your face intensity.

The 2024 edition will up the pressure for the pros even further with up to 60 athletes competing in a dramatic one-day World Championship event in partnership with World Triathlon on April 13 at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, tickets available now.

There will be no margin for error as a series of heats in the morning will see only 10 men and 10 women make it through to the final in the evening and a chance to lift the supertri E World Triathlon Championship powered by Zwift titles in front of a packed crowd at the iconic venue.

The heats will consist of two stages of swim, bike, run with a short break between them and a pursuit start for stage 2. The finals will be the full supertri E World Triathlon Championship format (Swim – Bike – Run // Run – Bike – Swim // Swim – Bike – Run) with a pursuit start in stage 3.

Taylor-Brown and Brownlee are sure to enjoy boisterous home support, but for the former taking down Beaugrand will be no mean feat.

Taylor-Brown has previously competed in the format three times with her best finish third in Singapore in 2022. This will be Beaugrand’s third supertri E appearance – all in London – and she has proven to be a natural, having won in 2022 and finished second last year.

Brownlee raced the first ever event in Rotterdam in 2020, finishing fifth, and last competed in London in 2021 where he placed fourth.
