Race preview: WTS Abu Dhabi

The long wait for the start to the WTS season is over. This weekend will be the season opener for the 2018 WTS series.

It will be in the form of a sprint race and the location will be the iconic Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

South African men to look out for are Richard Murray and Henri Schoeman. Murray and Schoeman took first and second respectively at the 2018 world cup season opener in Cape Town a few weeks ago and they look to be in top form.

Gillian Sanders will represent South Africa on the women’s side.

In both the men’s and women’s fields most of the big names will start and our athletes have their work cut out for them.

We wish our athletes all the best for the race and their travels.
