Interested in trying out Superseries Racing in 2017?

Now in its the third year, the superseries has been an exciting addition to race calender allowing club athletes to try draft legal racing and test themselves against the top athletes in the country. The introduction of Cat 2 has also opened up this style of racing to athletes who still wish to compete in national series.

Belpark Tri Club athletes have been well represented in two races in 2017 with 8 different athletes competing so far and more club members eager to give it a bash in remaining three races in series. In 2017, Triathlon Ireland have also added a new club competition league to superseries which means the more athletes we have racing each race, the better chance we have of competing for inaugural trophy.

The club is eager to provide specific training and development opportunities for athletes who wish to compete at top level both in 2017 and future years.

The following FREE training sessions have been organised in advance of Lanesboro Superseries. To book any of these events or to request further information, please contact Ellen Murphy or post on the forum.

Informal Cat 1/Cat 2 Group Training

A number of superseries athletes intend putting the skills learned from Guillermo into practice by racing in wave 1/8.30 of Ireland’s Eye 2km sea swim race and after breakfast/brunch heading on endurance bike spin from Howth. Spin can be adapted to suit individual training plans/bike level and all superseries athletes welcome to join.
