ERICA HAWLEY 18TH IN MEXICO

Erica Hawley Mexico June 2018.JPGERICA HAWLEY RACE REPORT :

Just to let you know that I raced in the World Cup in Huatulco, Mexico today (Ed : Sunday 10th June) and finished 18th. This was a great result for me and I am really pleased with how the race went. I was racing as part of the International Triathlon Union Team Asics Development Program which provides racing opportunities at various world cups this year. ( https://www.triathlon.org/development/athlete/asics_world_triathlon_team ) – this has been an amazing opportunity for me as I was travelling alone and without my coach and they provided me with endless support.

I came out of the water in 9th place just 10 seconds behind the first 8. Our “chase” pack quickly caught on to the leaders and we were a big pack of 20+ for the rest of the bike. I had a pretty decent run but did suffer on the 2nd lap of the run due to the heat.

The course was quite tough with a small hill on the bike and the run and of course it was very hot in Mexico. This was a great start to the rest of my racing for the year and I am very happy with my progress from the last World Cup I did in March. This is only my second World Cup so I couldn’t be happier with how the race went for me today. I gained ITU points and Olympic points which was the goal. Still lots to work on but progression being made.
