Apparently word has gotten out that triathletes like to travel to exotic locations to race. Literally hundreds of new triathlons will take place in 2010 and many will be staged at rather exotic locations. It doesn’t get much more exotic (or rich) than Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates. That’s why the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon is our most anticipated new race of 2010.
