2012 ITU World Cup season hits Huatulco

The ITU World Cup season hits Huatulco this weekend for the fifth consecutive year. In that time, it’s become one of the athletes favourites with its tough bike course and run.  Mix in some oppressive heat and Huatulco is one of the toughest stops on the ITU calendar. This year it’s the final ITU World Cup event to offer Olympic qualification points, and therefore there is plenty on the line. 

Portugal’s Bruno Pais is also one to watch on the podium, after his bronze medal here last year, while his countrymanJoao Pereira is still chasing those important points to keep Portugal in with a chance to send three men. In the hotly contested race to see who can send the maximum three men to London, Ivan Vasiliev‘s incredible April has meant that Russia rocketed from ninth to fourth in the space of three weeks and New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Portugal are fighting it out to fill places sixth through eight. Both Pereira and New Zealand’s third man, Ryan Sissons, are on the start list in Huatulco and will be looking to move further ahead of Australia and Canada, who are in eighth and ninth respectively.

The men’s race at 10.45am. Live timing and text updates will be available on, and the full wrap and video highlights will be at after the race.
