    Out of the race: Flora Duffy encountered bike problems in Abu Dhabi


The Royal Gazette is excited to bring you exclusive live coverage of Flora Duffy's opening World Triathlon Series race in Abu Dhabi this morning. Coverage will be available only in Bermuda through WTS Bermuda. However, the two-times world champion from Bermuda is out of the race after encountering problems with her chain during the second lap of the bike section.

Should you miss it, the above feed will be replayed throughout the day on our website.

Duffy was, typically, in the lead when she was forced out at a corner that also claimed three other riders during slippery conditions in the United Arab Emirates. Maria Czesnik, of Poland, Canadian Joanna Brown and Katie Zaferes, of the United States, went out at the same section of the course.

The race involves a 750-metre swim, 20-kilometre bike and 5km run.
