Leading Bermuda junior triathlete Alex Pilgrim, pictured in blue and red, races this Sunday 3rd May in the USA Triathlon Youth Elite Triathlon for 13-15 year olds.
Last year as a 13 year old he placed 13th in the same race so it will be interesting to see if he can improve on that result this year. The Youth Elite race, along with the Junior Elite race for 16-19 year olds, is one of only 4 qualifying races for the USA Elite Youth Championships and the USA Junior Elite Championships, to be held in West Chester, Ohio on August 1sst and 2nd, and has therefore attracted a combined total of over 300 elite youth and elite junior triathletes.
Alex’s race will get underway at 12.30PM EST or 1.30PM Bermuda time and consists of a 375m swim, 10km ( 2 lap) draft legal bike and 2.5km run. The race is part of the East Coast Triathlon Festival featuring adult and less competitive junior races.
