This weekend, Edmonton will welcome an ITU World Cup race to its city for the ninth time. The familiar host city will break from the standard race format in favor of a super speedy sprint 750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run course. The fast and furious race will see Olympic bronze medalist Erin Densham (AUS) return to racing action, while Kyle Jones (CAN) will attempt to win the World Cup for the second year on home soil. In addition to the World Cup, Edmonton will also host an ITU Paratriathlon Event, as well as the PATCO Triathlon Junior Pan American Cup.
In her return to ITU racing after winning Olympic bronze in London last year, Erin Densham (AUS), will again headline the women’s start list. Though her form is a question mark, as she has elected not to start in any World Cup or World Triathlon Series events since the 2012 Auckland Grand Final, this Aussie super star’s history suggests she will be in prime podium position.
