Abu Dhabi International Triathlon has the hottest field outside of the Hawaii Ironman World Championship (or maybe even equal to in the men's side). This is a who's who of the top long course athletes in the world. In its second running those who stayed away last year have obviously thought that it is not a one hit wonder and the lure of the prize purse is just too much for most. Trizone spoke to Josh Rix, Tim Berkel, Matty White, Paul Ambrose, Joe Gambles and Kiwi Graham O'Grady in the lead up to this exciting new and very rich international triathlon.
Ironman world champions and legends of triathlon - Australia's Chris â€˜Macca' McCormack and Craig â€˜Crowie' Alexander - have both thrown their hats in the ring for next month's Abu Dhabi International Triathlon, as they look to go head-to-head for the lion's share of the US$250,000 prize purse. And with the fearsome twosome having dominated the Hawaii Ironman for the past four years, with McCormack winning in 2010 and 2007 and Alexander in 2008 and 2009, the chasing elite field will need to be in superlative form to tame the energy-infused Antipodeans.
The 2011 Abu Dhabi International Triathlon is officially open for registration today, July 1st 2010. The event, which has been described in many quarters as â€˜an instant classic', will return to the United Arab Emirates' capital city on March 12th 2011.
