will see a new winner in the elite women's race, with Katie Zaferes (4 wins), HUUB's Georgia Taylor-Brown (Leeds), and Non Stanford (Hamburg) all absent. Good Luck to Sophie Coldwell who will be representing HUUB and GB alongside compatriot Beth Potter. Beth is the recently crowned European Champion. The start list includes only two of the current top-10 ranked women.
The elite men's race looks stronger with the top five, Vincent Luis (FRA), Javier Gomez (ESP), Fernando Alarza (ESP), Jacob Birtwhistle (AUS) and Mario Mola (ESP) all racing. HUUB athletes Jonny Brownlee (GBR) and Wian Sullwald (RSA) will be racing this round of the WTS. The winner in 2016 was Jonathan Brownlee, who is the only British male in the individual race.
There are no French women racing, meaning that their impressive Mixed Relay squad won't even be starting on Sunday.
