The term ‘iconic’ has been somewhat overused in the sport to describe the venues of many high profile races. However, in the case of Challenge Venice, I think we could all agree that word fits very comfortably.

Taking place over the full iron-distance this past weekend, check out this great set of images from Jose Luis Hourcade.
