After a fifty-day hiatus, the 2015 World Triathlon Series heads to Hamburg this Saturday (18 July). The men’s sprint-distance race will be missing both Brownlee brothers, with Jonny nursing a stress fracture and Alistair opting to sit out, while the women’s race will see GB’s Jodie Stimpson, Vicky Holland and Non Stanford lining up against series leader Gwen Jorgensen.

Spanish men round out the first three positions on the starters’ list this Saturday (18 July): 2014 series winner Javier Gomez missed WTS London but still holds the number one spot with 3507 points, followed by compatriot Mario Mola with 2979 points. Fernando Alarza is ranked third after his silver medal in London, and holds 2961 points.

With the Brownlees out, the path to the podium widens: Vincent Luis (FRA) has also been having an amazing year with a podium in every WTS race in which he has competed in this season, most recently with a bronze medal in London, as the sprint distance suits the Frenchman well.
