Two Canadians girls > Paula Findlay and Kathy Tremblay. It might be really surprising but Campbell, Sweatland don’t have enough point to be part of the party. Also, Nicola Spirig (aka the ubberbiker) will not be back to defend the title she won, as she tries to overcome an injury which also kept her out of the Sydney race. We strongly believe that Lisa Norden have the profile to win it, her ability in bike should make an difference.
Only one canadian, Simon Whitfield will start his season with this race. We have some indication that is running form should be here. He has been working really hard with the running legend Jon Brown. Again this race will be different since the bike is harder that usual. Unfortunately, the bike specialist, Chabrot is not here. Courtney Atkinson have a lot of succes here. Also, the race will show how complete athlete Javier Gomez and Jonathan Browlee are.
