Nachfolgend Streckenbesichtigungsvideo aus dem Helikopter
vor dem ersten 100.000 Dollar Dreitagewochenende.
Exotischer geht nimmer.
Ganz wie in den Tagen der Geburt des schönsten Sports der Welt:
Emma Frodeno wird das Rennen kommentieren.
Die Athleten haben sich gegenseitig
die Startplätze auf dem Schwimmponton zugelost.
Nicht unwichtig, da es am Rande eine starke Strömung gibt.

Hier das Wichtigste für den Freitag:
Triple Mix will require athletes to complete three stages, as follows:
Stage 1 – Swim (300m), Bike (6km), Run (2km)
Stage 2 – Run (2km), Bike (6km), Swim (300m)
Stage 3 – Bike (6km), Swim (300m), Run (2km)
A ten minute countdown to the start of the next stage will commence from the time that the first athlete crosses the finish line in the previous stage. Athletes finishing behind the first athlete in each stage will have less than ten minutes until the start of the next stage.
For some extra spice, athletes will also compete for time bonuses in each stage of Triple Mix. In Stage 1, athletes will compete for a 10-second time bonus for the first athlete out of the swim leg. In Stage 2, the first athlete to finish the run course will be awarded a 10-second time bonus and for Stage 3 the first athlete across the bike start line upon completion of the third lap of the bike leg will receive a 10-second time bonus.
These time bonuses are deducted from an athlete’s cumulative time across all three stages of Triple Mix. A single athlete can win more than one time bonus, if they are able to! The winner of Triple Mix is determined by the athlete’s cumulative time, including any time bonuses awarded, across Stages 1, 2, and 3. Maximum 30 seconds time bonus.
The Run start in Stage 2 and the bike start in Stage 3 are conducted in a controlled start with an athlete’s starting position on course for each stage reflecting their finish position from the previous stage.
For example, the first place finisher from Stage 1 starts in the ‘1’ position for Stage 2, while the second place finisher from Stage 1 starts Stage 2 in position two and so on.
