Below you can read the FETRI statement:

«It seems that Ximo's efforts to do the Championship are paying off. This is the email you send us today:

The contacts maintained in these days with the Department of Sports of the Orihuela City Council have come to fruition and although some technical aspects remain to be finished, I can tell you that we will be able to organize the Spanish Long Distance Triathlon Championship 2.011 in Orihuela in a few weeks, with the desire that it does not stop taking place, despite the difficulties that we face with this new challenge.

The date of celebration that we consider in 1st option, and which is the most likely, is November 05-06, although we still need to close some issues locally to be able to confirm it. In any case, the second possible date is the one immediately after. Despite the untimely date for the Spanish triathletics custom, our mild climate allows us to be optimistic about the expected meteorological weather.

In the project of our test it is contemplated to carry out the swimming segment in the La Pedrera reservoir, with T1 being located in Torremendo. The cycling circuit would run along secondary roads with slides, which we could qualify as "fun" for the legs, at 2 or 3 and a half laps depending on the final location of T2, which could coincide with T1 or be located in Orihuela town center, for where the third segment will take place, mainly through the groves of the Segura River in which the shepherd poet of our town gave birth to his first poems while his goats were grazing.

In any case, all the technical details will be completed in these coming weeks and in the shortest possible time. "

We will keep you informed.
