Chema Martínez and Luis Pasamontes the duel in the Subaru Triathlon Cross this weekend

The athlete and the cyclist will face this September 7 on Saturday as captains of two very competitive teams in the new relay category

Madrid's Casa de Campo will host this weekend a new and exciting edition, the seventh one, of the Subaru Cross Triathlon.

In 2019, one of the already established tests of the capital, it will have a great novelty: next to the existing categories Open, for the most popular and Pro, for the most advanced, a new category will be created by relays.

A new mode of competition that will feature two of the biggest names on the sports scene: athlete Chema Martínez and the cyclist Luis Pasamontes, como captains of two competitors.

The cyclist will be assisted by an extreme enduro professional driver and 125 world champion, Mario Román, which will cover the swimming part, and Irene Santos, passionate about trails and climbing, and who will run in the team of Balaclava.

For his part, Chema Martínez has recruited his daughter Paula for swimming and the popular humorist David Love, who will compete on two wheels.

In the new category by relay, each triathlete will make a sector of the competition and the team time will be the sum of the times of the three participants. Within the relay competition there will be a male, a female and a final mixed option.

The relay event will be similar to the Pro competition and will include 700 meters of swimming, 20 kilometers of Mountain bike and a final segment of 4,2 kilometers of running.

This is a test in which the triathletes will face a fast mountain bike circuit and on foot race using the routes allowed and compatible with the general conservation objectives of the Casa de Campo Park.

Perfect routes for the most popular and less experienced triathletes with MTB. The location offers an excellent location for the practice of the Triathlon Cross, in the heart of Madrid and well connected for both participants and the public.

The Open exit will take place at 16.30 hours and the Pro at 17.30.

Registrations can be made until September 5 at 20 hours and can be done through the web
