About

The Chaser is a new and exciting format that has never been seen before and unique to the AGPT Series. The Chaser is just that, you are continually chasing your competitors to gain as much time as possible going into the final. Tactics will come into play throughout each race and opportunities arise based on each individual race to give everyone a shot on Day Two.

Day Two will see athlete line up in order of their Day One times and leave only 10sec apart. It is anyones race if you can catch or be caught by the right athletes.

How does it work?

Day One

The first day of racing sees individual swim, bike, run time trials with athletes separated by 10 seconds.

Each category gets to experience the live Bingo draw to confirm the swim start order. This is the luck of the draw and could be critical. Starting at the front could be an advantage or maybe you hope to chase from the back rather than be chased?

Swim to be in it

Swim individual TT – swim to put time on your competitors – 10sec between athletes. Athletes will swim the course and receive a time. Athletes start the bike leg in the order they come across the swim finish line.

  • athletes will have a 4 minute rest from when the last athlete crosses the line

Ride to stay in it

Bike individual TT – Le Mans style start – ride to increase your time on your competitors – 10sec between athletes.  Athletes will ride the course and receive a time. Athletes start the run leg in the order they come across the bike finish line.

  • includes transitions
  • athletes will have a 4 minute rest from when the last athlete crosses the line

Run to win it

Run individual TT – run to extend your time on your competitors – 10sec between athletes. Athletes will run the course and receive a time and their run time is combined with their swim and bike times to give the final time and result for Day 1. The total combined time is the order athletes start the race on day 2. Chase, Chase, Chase

Day Two

Athletes will start in a pursuit style format over the normal swim, bike, run format as they chase or be chased for podium positions or key series points.

Regardless of start position the fastest time overall wins the event. So just because you start 16th doesn’t mean you can’t win, may just depend on who you have around you. Race hard, race smart.
