Matthew Oliveira will race for the top junior development cycling team in the United States at the four-day Green Mountain Stage Race in Vermont next month.

Oliveira has been invited to represent Hot Tubes after his superb performances at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, Bahamas, last month where he won gold in the time-trial and bronze in the road race.

The 17-year-old, who competed at the Green Mountain race for Bermuda last year, said he is thrilled to be able to don the team’s eye-catching sky blue kit and race alongside some of the best junior riders in the US.

“I discovered Hot Tubes last year after their dominating junior performances [in Vermont] where they won several stages and the overall title,” said Oliveira, who will race from September 1 to 4.

“They have some of the top juniors in America and I’m so excited to be able to race with them as a team in the same kit!”

Flora Duffy is on the brink of winning her second straight ITU World Triathlon Series title after another dominant victory in Stockholm on Saturday.

The Bermudian is guaranteed to repeat her title with a seventh place or higher finish at the WTS Grand Final in Rotterdam on September 16 after recording her fifth win of the season in the Swedish capital.

There was speculation that Duffy might not compete in Stockholm to save herself for Rotterdam, with 1½ times the points on offer. However she decided to race to give herself as much of a cushion as possible in her attempt to win a second straight WTS title.

“I had five pretty good scores before today, but you never know what is going to happen,” Duffy told the WTS website after her victory. “With the Grand Final being points-and-a-half, you kind of want to go in there with the biggest buffer that you can to make sure you can absolutely give yourself the world title.”
