Organizers of the third running of the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon have announced the current lineup for the March 3rd event and it once again features some of the top names in the sport.

The men’s race will be a battle between athletes who have experienced success here before like Eneko Llanos, Frederik Van Lierde and Dirk Bockel, and newcomer all stars like Chris Lieto and Andi Boecherer.

With two-time champ Julie Dibens not on the start list at this point, the women’s race is wide open. Favorites to watch include recent Panama 70.3 winner Angela Naeth and 70.3 world champ Melissa Rollison.
