Team INEOS Cyclist Cameron Wurf to race at Super League Triathlon Malibu
INEOS Grenadiers rider Cameron Wurf is ready to shake things up as he joins the line-up for Super League Triathlon Malibu.
Wurf, the Australian pro cyclist who has also reached the pinnacle of long distance triathlon winning Ironman events and qualifying for the World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, will be taking on the kings of short course on the shores of Zuma Beach.
The 39-year-old will go head-to-head with some of the best cyclists in the sport such as Hayden Wilde and Jonny Brownlee as he sees whether he can mix it in the fastest formats in the sport.
Wurf said: “I am extremely excited but also absolutely petrified, crapping my pants, at the same time. I grew up as a kid on Sunday afternoons watching Macca (Chris McCormack) racing sprint triathlon on Channel 10 with Brad Bevan and Greg Welch and it was awesome to watch.
In previous years, Wurf has raced in the IRONMAN World Championship three times from 2017-2019. He has recorded the fastest bike split each time – his best of 4:09:06 in 2018 breaking the course record which he had set the previous year.
Super League Triathlon Malibu takes place on Saturday, September 17 (13:00 local time), and is the third race of the 2022 Championship Series.
