Pro Men – who is racing?

In a race that has already been billed as the unofficial Canadian Championship, Windsor native Lionel Sanders is set to make his return from injury on Sunday, after picking up a stress fracture in his rib earlier this season.

The 36-year-old, who took the win at IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside in style in his only race of the year to date, will go head-to-head with fellow Canadian Jackson Laundry, who finished in third place last time out in Southern California.

Cody Beals, who recently finished ninth at IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga, is the next best ranked athlete on the start list and will also be flying the flag for the home nation, as the leading trio look to sweep the podium in Mont-Tremblant.

From down south, Americans Chris Leiferman and Matthew Marquardt drop down in distance, whilst recent IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder champion Trevor Foley looks to make it two wins in a row and take down training partner Sanders.

Other contenders include T100 Tour contracted athlete Ben Kanute, who will be looking to regain his mojo following a tough start to the season, plus Colin Szuch, who currently sits inside the Top 5 in the IRONMAN Pro Series standings.

Pro Women – who is racing?

Like the men’s race, the women’s competition looks set to be an unofficial Canadian championship, with Paula Findlay taking on Tamara Jewett and Rach McBride in a race which also features some international flavour.

Findlay, who recently beat Jewett in San Francisco at the third round of the T100 Tour, will look to break away on the bike in Quebec, whilst her compatriot will be hoping to run her down with one of her trademark mega half-marathon splits.

Australian duo Ellie Salthouse and Grace Thek will also look to be in the mix for the podium, with Salthouse racing off the back of a strong win at IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder earlier on in the month.

Americans Sarah True, Rachel Olsen and Alice Alberts will be outside contenders for the podium, with 2014 Commonwealth Games champion Jodie Stimpson, fourth recently in Boulder, another dark horse for the medals.

Prize Money: What’s on the line?

The prize purse on offer this weekend is $50,000 – with each of the winners collecting a $7,500 share of that total.

As part of the IRONMAN Pro Series, athletes will also earn points as they seek to become the IRONMAN Pro Series Champion and win a share of the $1.7 million bonus prize purse. 

In Quebec, the maximum possible score will be 2,500 points for 1st place, with points for all remaining professional finishers diminishing based on the time deficit to first place, at a rate of 1 point per 1 second deficit to the winner’s finishing time. 

In addition to money and series points, there will be a total of six qualifying slots (three MPRO/three FPRO) for IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Taupo later this season.

The total funds will be paid eight-deep, as follows:

  1. $7,500
  2. $5,000
  3. $3,750
  4. $3,000
  5. $2,000
  6. $1,500
  7. $1,250
  8. $1,000
