London’s Hyde Park will play host to the Vitality World Triathlon next weekend, where the world’s fastest triathletes will battle it out for honours.

Great Britain’s Brownlee brothers, Jonathan and Alistair, will be among the elite men’s field on Sunday May 31, with their race setting off at 3.05pm.

The elite women’s race begins at 4.45pm and fans can soak up the atmosphere by either watching for free or can secure the best seats in the house by purchasing grandstand tickets at worldtrilondon.com/event_info/grandstand/.

The series is really hotting up with Alistair Brownlee returning to the top of the podium in Cape Town after missing the start of the season through injury.

Brother Jonathan is also in great form after winning in his previous two races in Auckland and the Gold Coast.

The Vitality World Triathlon London will see the brothers race alongside each other for the first time this season.

In the women’s ITU World Triathlon Series the impressive Gwen Jorgensen has kept her record-breaking unbeaten streak intact, securing an eighth consecutive win on the Gold Coast.

GB triathlete Vicky Holland returned from injury in style as she claimed her first ITU World Triathlon Series win in Cape Town.
