Brownlee and Lawrence join Bahrain Endurance 13
This news follows Alistair Brownlee’s announcement, in December 2016, that he will be racing longer distances in 2017.
Ali Brownlee to target Ironman 70.3 Worlds
“The next couple of years will see me race over longer distances, though I will still be at Leeds WTS this year,” Brownlee says. “I’m looking to be as competitive as I have been over the Olympic distance, although I have a lot to learn. I’m strong over all three disciplines and I will look to use that to my advantage.
“I’m really pleased to be joining the Bahrain Endurance team; they are the best athletes in the world, men and women.”
Fellow British triathlete and current Ironman 70.3 World Champion Holly Lawrence is also looking forward to wearing the racing red alongside her new teammates. Lawrence left ITU racing in favour of middle distance two years ago, and won the 2016 Ironman 70.3 world title in Mooloolaba, Australia.
