The GE Strathclyde Park Triathlon will be broadcast this Sunday 13 June on Channel 4 at 8.30am. The weekend’s programme is the first of five highlight programmes on the 2010 British Triathlon Super Series to be shown on Channel 4.
The 30-minute show highlights the impressive victories of Ritchie Nicholls and Jacqueline Slack in the 2010 GE Strathclyde ITU Triathlon European Cup elite race, part of the GE Strathclyde Park Triathlon event, which took place on 23 May.
The third event of the 2010 British Triathlon Super Series takes place this weekend at the Nokia Windsor Triathlon. The event is one of the most prestigious events in the UK’s triathlon race calendar and reaches a major milestone this weekend with the 20th running of the event.
Strathclyde winner, Jacqueline Slack will be back in action and looking to replicate her form from the first two races of the Super Series.
Jacqueline commented: “It was a great experience to win the first Super Series event of the year at the GE Strathclyde Park Triathlon. I raced in Blenheim, finishing fifth and will be looking to keep the form going for Windsor. The race will come down to the run, and with a few of us running similar times, it will make an exciting race to watch.”
Jill Parker who finished third overall in last year’s Super Series and Vanessa Raw, who returns to domestic racing having finished 31st in the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Madrid last weekend, will join Jacqueline on the start line.
In the men’s race, Marc Jenkins, Richard Stannard and Mark Threlfall will all be racing. Current leader of the British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series, Tom Bishop will compete, looking to continue the form that helped him to a podium position at last weekend’s Blenheim Triathlon.
