“If you want it, work for it” that is a quote Martin Van Riel lives by and he is certainly putting in the work. Sixth place in the 2016 Olympics and ending 2017 inside the top 20 in the ITU World rankings, this guy is on the up. Now turning his gaze to SLT, are we about to see a Belgium leading the field? SLT will push him like no race ever has with its brutal formats and from the gun racing – can he hold on? Grit, determination and perseverance may well mean he can!
