In addition to the triple Xterra world champion there will be two more Spaniards at the starting line, Xavier Jové y Alejandro Salmerón. The main rivals in the fight for the top positions will be the Belgian Yeray Luxem, the French Fracois Carloni or the Portuguese Rui Dolores y Octávio Vicente.

The distances are 1500m of swimming in Lake Alverca, followed by 35km of BTT through the Boquilibo National Reserve in a very technical circuit, to finish with a 10km race on foot in a circuit with different natural obstacles, such as branches and fallen trees.
