Taking place on Sunday 21st April 2019, the Cannes International Triathlon (www.cannes-international-triathlon.com) is one of our favourite European events of the early season. The challenging 2km / 107km / 16km distances consistently attract some of the very best athletes in the world, the 2018 edition won by Great Britain’s Lucy Charles and Spain’s five-time ITU World Champion, Javier Gomez. Sebastian Kienle, Leanda Cave and Giulio Molinari are among the previous winners of this popular event which includes some spectacular cycling in and around the Bay of Cannes.

We already know that Great Britain’s Tim Don will be looking to join Lucy and Leanda as British winners in Cannes (previously announced HERE), and if he is to achieve that he will have to beat the mighty biking prowess of Australia’s Cameron Wurf.

Wurf set an IRONMAN World Championship bike course record of 4:09:06 last year, and will surely relish the 1700m of climbing over the 107km bike course, given his background in Pro Tour cycling. Don is no stranger to tough bikes courses himself, a previous winner of the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon. That said, you would still expect Tim to be starting the closing 10-miles on the run with a deficit to make up. It should be an interesting battle.
