Photos below are from the Under 23 race at the 2002 Duathlon World Championships in Alpharetta, Georgia. This was the first World Championships to include the newly created Under 23 division. They raced at the same distance as the senior men – 10k run, 40k draft legal bike, and 5k run. All photos are by Danny Irby.

Tyler Johnson (USA) had a small lead over Santiago Alues Ascen (BRA), Stuart Hayes (GBR), and Rory Mackie (ZBW) after the first 10k.
