This coming Saturday comes the first major competition of the year, the IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai, where some of the best triathletes in the world will be at the starting line.
The test will serve as proof for many professionals who are preparing the IRONMAN World Championship of St.George that will be played in the month of May.
In the female category, she stands out as the great favorite Daniela Ryf, who will seek the fifth victory in the test.
It will also be necessary to take into account Laura Phillip, who will surely try to give battle to the Swiss.
As for the men's event, the great favorite is Kristian Blummenfelt, although there will be triathletes of the stature of Daniel Bækkegard, last year's winner, Bart Aernouts, David Plese, Antony Costes, Pieter Heemeryck, Pierre Le Corre o Martin Van Riel.
A single Spanish triathlete appears on the list Eneko Elosegui.
The test will be held this Saturday, March 5, starting at 7:00 local time (04:00) Spanish time
