Athletes To Watch | Men

We have picked our four athletes to watch in the men's race at this weekends supertri E World Triathlon Championship powered by Zwift. Chase McQueen will be seeking redemption 12 months after losing his cool in last years final.

Chase McQueen (USA)

There's unfinished business for Chase as he returns to the supertri E World Triathlon Championships in London.

A year ago he headed to the UK on the back of victory in Montreal and was expected to battle it out for the overall crown with Sursee winner Henri Schoeman. 

All went to plan as he qualified automatically for the final but then came that legendary meltdown after he felt his treadmill was faulty.

We know supertri is all about unpredictable racing but what followed was a first as McQueen switched to some - pretty impressive - butterfly in the pool!

Extensive investigations followed after the race, concluding that the claims of a faulty treadmill were unfounded, and Chase is back for a shot at redemption on Saturday.

Hugo Milner (GBR)

The Brit made his mark on the world stage in some style in 2023 after just two years in the sport as he showcased his running background to notch an incredible breakthrough victory at World Triathlon Cup Miyazaki.

He started the closing 10km run in 36th position and more than a minute behind but produced a lung-bursting surge to win gold with a 29:33.

And he bettered that split by a second last month when he took his first win of this year at the Europe Triathlon Cup Quarteira, reeling in two-time world champion and supertri legend Vincent Luis in the process.

All of which puts him in the mix for a potential Olympics spot this year and what better way to give another nudge to Team GB selectors than by making his mark on his supertri E debut?

He got some useful race practice at the World Triathlon Indoor Cup Lievin a fortnight ago but missed out on progressing by a couple of seconds and margins look sure to be tight again on Saturday.

Tim Don's always a man worth listening to and he's advised Hugo to focus on his transitions if he wants to make an immediate impact in this fast and furious environment.

Max Stapley (GBR)

Now racing for GB, the multi-talented Stapley will be looking to build on a successful 2023.

A supertri regular, his strong swim makes him a force to be reckoned with and he made a significant impression when he stepped up in distance late last season.

He first won the Laguna Phuket Triathlon and then made the podium along with Marten Van Riel and Henri Schoeman at 70.3 Bahrain.

And he carried on the good work earlier this year when back at sprint distance with a sixth-placed finish against a strong field at the World Triathlon Cup Hong Kong.

Second in Munich in 2022 is his best performance to date in supertri and he's returning to London after missing out on making the final last year.

Never shy to voice his opinions, listen out for his entertaining soundbites if he's interviewed when in the thick of the action on Saturday!

Maxime Hueber-Moosbrugger (FRA)

The Frenchman has been an Arena Games / supertri E regular and impacted the series last year in great style.

He was runner up in Sursee after a stunning 2:37 1km run on the very final leg catapulted him up from seventh.

That day in Switzerland saw him finish just ahead of local favourite Simon Westermann and it was a similar story in the finale in London where they qualified first and second from their heat.

Hueber-Moosbrugger went on to finish seventh in the final and the 2022 European Duathlon Champion will be hoping for a podium spot this time around in what looks a wide-open renewal.
