This is a preview of the Miami T100, which was won by Denmark’s Magnus Ditlev and Great Britain’s India Lee.

This weekend, the T100 Triathlon World Tour will host its debut event in Florida, with 40 of the best triathletes in the world battling it out over the 100km distance at the Miami T100.

Featuring triathlon legends such as Alistair Brownlee and Daniela Ryf, plus reigning IRONMAN World Champions Sam Laidlow and Lucy Charles-Barclay, both start lists are stacked with talent.

In our preview of the race below, you can find all the information you need including start times, streaming information and a preview of both fields.

Start times and how to watch live

In Miami, both races will take place on Saturday March 9, with the professional men kicking things off at 13:15 local time. This corresponds to 18:15 in the UK, 19:15 in Central Europe and 10:15 on the West Coast.

For the women, the starting gun will go off at 16:50 local time. This corresponds to 21:50 in the UK, 22:50 in Central Europe and 13:50 on the West Coast.

On Saturday, the live broadcast will begin at 13:00 local time and finish at 21:00. In Europe, the races can be watched on Eurosport or Discovery+. Watch the official broadcast below, available outside of Europe.

Course and race distance

In Miami, the athletes will race over the 100km distance, which consists of a 2km swim, 80km bike ride and then finishes with an 18km run.

On Saturday, the race will begin with just over two laps of the swim course, which includes an ‘Aussie Exit’, meaning the athletes come out of the water and dive back in between laps.

Out of transition and on to the bike, they will then complete a dizzying 22 laps of a course on parts of the iconic Homestead Speedway, dismounting and entering T2 after 80.5km.

Finally, to finish the day, the pros will run seven laps around the Speedway, before sprinting down the finishing chute which is adjacent to T2.

Pro Men

Coming into this weekend, Denmark’s Magnus Ditlev is the top seeded athlete, sitting at PTO World #2. Previously finishing on the podium at the PTO US Open in 2022 and PTO Tour European Open in 2023, the 26-year-old will be chasing his first T100 title in Miami.

Jason West, the leading American, is another athlete who like Ditlev has finished on the podium at previous PTO events, but has never stood on the top step. The winner here last year at CLASH Miami, West will be a heavy favourite on race day.

Elsewhere in the American ranks, top stars such as Rudy von Berg, Sam Long and Ben Kanute will have the opportunity to test their fitness. Both Kanute and von Berg are qualified for Kona and will go head-to-head for the IRONMAN World Championship title later this year.

Talking of the IRONMAN World Championship, reigning champion Sam Laidlow races his first PTO event since a disappointing DNF at the Asian Open in Singapore. Fourth at the PTO Tour US Open in 2022, the 25-year-old will hope his good form on American soil continues.

Mathis Margirier, Leon Chevalier, Clement Mignon and Arthur Horseau join fellow Frenchman Laidlow on the start line. All strong cyclists, expect some fireworks on the Homestead Speedway on the bike.

Finally, Alistair Brownlee is back in action after ending 2023 with a DNF at IRONMAN 70.3 Bahrain. Having made his mark on the 100km distance in Ibiza with a solid sixth last season, the double Olympic champion will have his eye on the podium this time around.

Despite the calibre of the competition, it’s hard to look past West when it comes to predicting the winner in Miami. In terms of the rest of the podium, another American in Long looked sharp in his season opener at IRONMAN 70.3 Pucon and could be one to watch, alongside the likes of Ditlev.

Pro Women

In the women’s race, Lucy Charles-Barclay will be buoyed by the absence of Taylor Knibb, Ashleigh Gentle, Imogen Simmonds and Anne Haug, who were the only athletes to beat her over the 100km distance last season.

On paper, this race looks like Charles-Barclay’s to lose. However, the strength in depth in the women’s field is incredible, with arguably ten athletes capable of fighting for the win.

From the UK, Kat Matthews and Emma Pallant-Browne are the standout challengers, but India Lee, Holly Lawrence, Lucy Byram and Lucy Buckingham all have their strengths and cannot be overlooked as podium contenders.

The biking pedigree in the field is also unrivalled, with Team Canada TT rider Paula Findlay and long course legend Daniela Ryf bringing more than their fair share of watts to the table once they get on to the bikes in Miami.

Then if all that wasn’t enough, you also have to factor in the presence of one of the fastest runners in the sport, Tamara Jewett, who in her first race of the year last season took down a quality field to win IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside.

Picking a winner is almost impossible, but given her tendency to get it done on the biggest stage, Charles-Barclay takes this one in my opinion and clinches her first PTO/T100 crown.

On the podium, Findlay, who has won here before, and Buckingham, who could benefit from LCB’s impact on the race dynamics, are as good a pick as any.

Prize Money and Points

Racing for a total prize purse of $250,000, plus valuable T100 Tour points in Miami, there is plenty at stake. On race day, the winners will take home $25,000 and 35 points, with the prize money and points for each position outlined below.
