Kitzbühel Dextro Energy Triathlon – ITU World Championship Series


As the Dextro Energy Triathlon – ITU World Championship moves to Europe for the summer, the triathlon circuit returns to the picturesque town of Kitzbühel nestled away in the Alps. Famed for its winter sports and legendary Hahnenkamm ski run the locals have enjoyed summer triathlon action for the past three years.

 

The women’s race brings together an interesting match up between world number one Emma Moffatt and Portugal’s Vanessa Fernandes. Moffatt enters Kitzbühel on the back of wins at both the Washington leg of the series and the Hy-Vee World Cup whilst Fernandes has just one major competition under her belt, last week’s European Championships, where she finished third.

Home support lies with 2004 Olympic champion Kate Allen and Eva Dollinger, who made the podium in Kitzbühel in 2007, although neighbouring Switzerland have last year’s Kitzbühel winner Nicola Spirig returning to form following victory at the European Championships, alongside Washington bronze medallist Daniela Ryf and the consistent Magali Di Marco Messmer.

 

In form Canadian Lauren Groves makes the trip across the Atlantic, with Andrea Hewitt and Debbie Tanner from New Zealand the other notable distance travellers. 2008 world champion Helen Jenkins is back towards her best, and she will be joined by young aspiring team mate 19 year old Hollie Avil.

Strong cyclist Jessica Harrison from France could be suited to the hilly bike course whilst Christiane Pilz from Germany will be hoping to get back into the thick of the action with a strong result in Madrid. European Championship silver medallist, Elizabeth May from Luxembourg, could also be in the mix.
