Australia Grand Prix Triathlon
National Series 2022-23
Australia Grand Prix Triathlon
The Super Sprint Weekend will be the qualifying race for the Australian Grand Prix season where athletes have the opportunity to race in a multi format event over 3 days. It is brutal early season racing in Canberra at the world class Stromlo Leisure Centre. Let's see who will confirm their spots for the 2022-23 Australian Grand Prix Triathlon Series.
The Eliminator like all the Grand Prix formats will test the athlete’s 1%’ers, their ability to back up after racing at full pace and mistakes can’t afford to be made. This Eliminator is based on position but the 90sec rule comes into play from Round 2 as the leaders try to eliminate as many athletes as possible, race to the line is the key if you want to make the final.
The Triple Mix is on the menu for this round of Grand Prix Triathlon racing. Athletes versatility will be tested as the they all go through round 1 with a SBR and then reverse it for round 2. Results from round 1 and 2 will see athletes line up in round 3 in a pursuit start commencing with the bike. How much time will you give yourself?
The Sprint will really see how the extra distance works out as we really get into the back end of the season. This will be a great opportunity for those with a little more stamina and endurance to shine. It could really be the race that upsets the series leaders and secures athletes spots for the 'Championships'
Final series points are on the line with the athletes racing three triathlons that slightly increase in distance with elimination happening after the 2nd race. Watch the best Junior and U23Elite athletes while our future Youth athletes battle it out.

Its great seeing a committed, motivated individual with the experience and knowledge of Corey Bacon taking the delivery of pathway triathlon racing to the next level. Triathlon in Australia has needed a race series the calibre of the Grand Prix Series for a long time. Well done Corey, I for one am ecstatic our junior athletes have more opportunities to race at such a high level.
We are delighted to be supporting this new High Performance initiative following the Super League format and F1 series of old. Our national pathways athletes can’t wait to participate in what is shaping up to be a super competitive environment of racing at the highest level. This fun, fast and furious racing is very exciting and well done Corey Bacon on getting this off the ground.
It was great to be apart of the first AGPT race of the series in my hometown of Canberra. The event was well run on a spectator friendly course which incorporated a combination of technical sections which made for an entertaining day of racing. The eliminator format and super sprint distances are rapidly becoming an important skill in triathlon due to the introduction of the Mixed Team Relay into the Olympic and Commonwealth Games programs. Races such as these are important for Youth/Junior athletes to be involved in, to help develope the skills required to meet the demands for this short/sharp racing. Fast transitions, bike handling and open water swimming techniques are some of the skills which benefit from participating in AGPT events. Corey is extremely experienced within these areas and I would strongly encourage, younger athletes and others looking to further develop their skills, to give it a go.
‘This series of races provides the best opportunities for Australian pathway Triathletes due to their design, affordability, prize money and opportunity.
Pathway Athletes today are the future of Triathlon in Australia.
Racing opportunities are vital to developing these young Triathletes’ so they have the skill to not only enjoy the sport of Triathlon and create a foundation for healthy habits for life, but to also instil the grit, resilience and knowledge required to become a World leading Triathlete.
Every Pathway Triathlete in Australia should be involved in this series.’
“I have seen a lot of great events come and go over the years. Australia has always been the innovator. So it is so great to see the AGPT series is providing short, fast competitive events for the younger generation to fine their race skills. By thinking outside the box and moving away from traditional distances”
