The PTO have revealed the wildcard picks for the women’s race at the San Francisco T100, which will be held next month in California.

The third leg of the brand new T100 Triathlon World Tour, San Francisco follows the Miami T100 and the Singapore T100 in the eight-race series this season.

With the contracted races already announced, the four additional wildcards look set to add an additional dimension to an exciting field of professional athletes.
