An impressive line-up to create history at first ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships in Spain
Extremadura, Spain - A new chapter in ITU history will be written this weekend at the first ITU World Cross Triathlon Championships in Extremadura. The inaugural elite world titles consist of a swim, a mountain bike leg and a cross-country run, and some of the best triathletes in the world will be in Spain in to decide the titles.
Spain has assembled an impressive team to lead the charge at home, with over 80 ITU World Cup appearances between the men and women on its roster as well as athletes who specialise in multisport disciplines. But triathletes from South Africa, Canada, Switzerland and the USA are also real contenders to hold one of those two history-making titles aloft come Sunday.
