Wearing number one in the men’s field is Søren Bystrup who will be looking to claim victory in front of a home crowd. While Spain’s Emilio Martin and experienced French duathlete Benoit Nicolas will mix it up and stick to the heels of the Dane.

Also on the men’s start list is Benjamin Choquert from France and Great Britain’s Mark Buckingham.

The women’s race welcomes an experienced class including Sandrina Illes from Austria and Switzerland’s Melanie Maurer. Australia’s Felicity Sheedy-Ryan, renowned as one of the world’s best duathletes, will no doubt prove a threat to the field and will be aiming to dominate the format from the start.

Georgina Schwiening from Great Britain and Ai Ueda from Japan will be ones to watch in the women’s race.

A stellar field of athletes will also take to the duathlon course across the age group, open, junior and U23 categories in search World Championship prestige and personal best performances.
