The female triathlon elite will meet in San Francisco on June 8 for the third race of the T100 Triathlon World Tour, where the world number 1, Ashleigh Gentle, and Taylor Knibb.

Gentle, winner of the T100 Singapore, will face Knibb for the first time this season over the 100 km distance in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.

In addition, we will have to take into account the German Anne Haug, who will make his debut in the T100, and his compatriot Laura Philipp, who also joins the starting line for the first time.

The 2022 Ironman world champion, the American Chelsea Sodaro, returns to a city she considers her second home, while the 10-time Ironman world champion, Daniela Ryf, hopes to be on the starting line, injuries permitting.

The 100 km race (2 km swim, 80 km bike and 18 km run) will take place in the stunning San Francisco Bay.

The athletes will begin the test jumping into the icy waters next to Alcatraz Island.
