Report from Karen Smith :
Tyler (Smith) raced in Dunkerque, France at the weekend in the 2018 Grand Prix de Triathlon. He was racing as part of a team – E.C. Sartrouville. These races attract the top International elites who are recruited by French clubs.
Tyler was 30th out of 96 starters. It was won by Luis Vincent of France (currently ranked 5th in ITU). It was a pretty solid result against excellent competition.
Tyler says he does these type of races for experience in a high quality fast pace race. It’s good to be part of a team for support and tactics. He said he is happy with his form ahead of two ITU European Cups in the next two weekends (Wuurstwezel Belgium June 23rd and Holten, Netherlands on June 30th.)
