Bill Warburton chosen to coach US Team at Winter Tri World Champs

Posted By on Mon, Mar 7, 2011 at 5:52 PM

Local skiing and biking coach, Bill Warburton was just chosen to go to Finland to support the US Team at the Winter Triathlon World Champs in Jamijarvi. Bill is known in Bend as the Cycling Program Director and Nordic Coach for the Bend Endurance Academy.

A Winter Triathlon combines running with skate skiing and mountain biking on snow. Bill will help the US team with ski waxing and coaching. Last year, USA team member Rebecca Dussault won the 2010 Winter Triathlon World Championship individual title in Eidsvoll, Norway. The USA Women's team also won the Team Relay in 2010.


 

 

"All of our skiers had very fast skis year, so that certainly helped us do well," Warburton said. "The Europeans were impressed and maybe a little surprised with our representation as a team." Winter Triathlon is not very well-known in the US, but there are many events throughout the winter in Europe.
Athletes qualify for the World Championships based on their results from the USA National Winter Triathlon Championships in Soldier Hollow, UT. European competitors will be selected in March at the European Championships in Sweden.
