It’s the off-season, which means one thing in elite racing… Super League Triathlon (SLT)! And what a spectacle it’s been, with the Championship Series set to round off in style with the Grande Finale this weekend. Here’s how you can watch the action…


Where’s the next Super League race?

After the excitement of the Arena Games series earlier this year that saw the first triathlon eSport champions crowned, the season’s championship series started with a bang in London on 4 September before continuing apace just one week later in Munich, Germany.

It then ventured to Malibu on 18 September where American star Taylor Spivey and Kiwi Hayden Wilde reigned supreme under the Californian sun. Last year, the American city on the Pacific Ocean hosted the grand final to great acclaim.

Next came a thrilling victory in Toulouse for Wilde, who’s now established a substantial lead in the overall Super League standings, and a strong performance from Georgia Taylor-Brown, which pushed her up to neck-and-neck in the ranks with Spivey.

Last up on the schedule is the Grand Finale in NEOM, a modern, smart technology city still in construction in northwestern Saudi Arabia, on 29 October.

With plenty still to play for, the showdown in NEOM is set to be one for the ages as athletes battle for a share of the $1.8m prize pool.

Which race format will athletes race in NEOM?

Athletes will take on the Enduro format for the final race in the series. Arguably the most brutal of the lot, the format will see athletes tackle nine consecutive triathlon disciplines with no break whatsoever between stages.

In other words, the short-course stars will take on three triathlons over three stages, and unlike other formats, there’ll be no short pauses for respite.

To add to the drama, those that fall more than 90secs behind the frontrunners will be eliminated! Still confused? Take a look at the explainer below.
