Cup of Tri 47: Stuart Hayes

Stu Hayes leading the Brownlees at London 2012

Stuart Hayes was the man British Triathlon turned to in 2012 when then needed someone who could swim like a fish and bike like the wind. They needed someone who was fast enough in the water that he could keep up with the Brownlees - no mean feat in itself - and then was powerful enough on the bike that he could control the race - chase down breaks, and keep the pace so high that no one had the ability to break away. He did his job to perfection, and played a pivotal role in Team GB winning Gold and Bronze that day.

Stu talks to us about his race at 2012, but also his recent comeback from injury that has blighted his last 3 years, his sub 31 minute 10k against Mo Farah, and his aspirations to race 70.3 and possibly Ironman too!
