Pro Men

Whilst most of the attention will be focused on Iden and Lange in the buildup to the race, German Jan Stratmann wears #1, and after finishing second behind Leo Bergere last month at IRONMAN 70.3 Valencia, will look to continue his podium streak in Spain.

Lange, who finished 16th last time he raced over the middle distance in Oceanside, will be competing in Mallorca just two weeks after his second place finish at IRONMAN Texas. Of the two Germans then, Stratmann may well be Iden’s most formidable opponent.

Elsewhere, T100 Triathlon World Tour stars Youri Keulen and Mathis Margirier will be in the hunt for a win, with Keulen in fine form and firing on all cylinders after a breakthrough victory at the Singapore T100 last month ahead of Sam Long and Pieter Heemeryck.

Other athletes to look out for include home favourite Antonio Benito Lopez, plus South African Bradley Weiss, who has yet to find his form in the T100 Tour this season and will be keen to prove himself against some top opposition.

Pro Women

In the women’s race, the battle for the win appears to be a two-horse race between Philipp and Emma Pallant-Browne, despite both athletes yet displaying the form this season that has elevated them to world class status.

Philipp, fourth in Valencia, opted out of racing the T100 Tour events in Miami and Singapore, whilst EPB was forced to DNF in Miami, but bounced back with a solid second place finish behind Taylor Knibb at IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside.

Italians Girorgia Priarone and Elisabetta Curridori will be two of several athletes fighting for the third spot on the podium, alongside the likes of Daniela Kleiser and Sara Svensk, with Sif Bendix Madsen another possible contender.

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 Mallorca, 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 the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Taupō, New Zealand, December 14-15 2024.

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
