With the best women in the world descending on Ibiza on May 6, the final start list including the wildcards for the PTO Tour European Open has been published.

The field assembled might just go down in history as the best ever seen in women’s middle distance racing, with IRONMAN World Champions, IRONMAN 70.3 World Champions, PTO World Ranked #1 and a host of others set to duke it out in Ibiza. Eight of the top 10 in the PTO World Rankings are on it.
