Olympic champ Alistair Brownlee has announced he is kicking off his season by racing Ironman Dubai 70.3 this Friday. Last year Ali marked his move to Ironman 70.3 racing by winning the Ironman 70.3 North American Pro Championship in St. George in dominating style and qualified for the70.3 worlds.
Unfortunately surgery on his hip meant he was unable to race the worlds last year but after a winter of training it seems he’s back and ready to race… what will the season hold for him?
Fellow Brits Will Clarke and Mark Buckingham are also on the start list and flying the flag for GB
About to board the plane to my first race of the year. Very excited to be back on a start line after so long off and to be part of @bahrainendurance13 for another year. #triathlon #firstrace #middledistance #dubai70.3
