I thought that any time before mid November in the UAE would be too hot.

 

maybe they could move it to Doha and run it in one of the indoor soccer stadiums they are building for the World Cup...

Next race venue is set, Macca has put a teaser photo on Instagram. World's premier triathlon nation apparently. Photo looks very European....France, Italy, Spain.

he says "A very different challenge in every way to the Hamilton island event"

I am guessing by that he means somewhere likely to be cold"

plus cold,

it wont be cold as unless they change the order. Cant image the transition from bike/run to swim and having to put a wetsuit on.

The distances they swim there's no need for a wetsuit above 15 degrees.

 

Edit: Thinking about it, they are carrying a little less fat than me. Make that 18 degrees. :)

Womens race was also mentioned

When he says "men and women", he just means that there will be pom-pom girls at the finish line. :whistling:

Move on guys, it has been explained numerous times by so many ppl why Hamilton island wasn't able to have a womens race, the next race, as has been announced, will have both men and women racing. I don't see anyone complaining about the pink races all over Australia that no men are allowed to race, or the womens tri only media web sites(there used even be a mag). It looks like this series is going to be up and running due to the interest and success of the trial race, which means that everyone has their time to shine now. Lets all be grateful we will have some more great races to watch.

Plenty of "able" if there had been a bit of will to do it.

Corporate spin is for suckers.

Haha. I thought the same thing. 

Lets wait and see if there is a women's race. 

Im tipping race 2 still will not have women. 

They are all still pregnant or would have just had babies. 

Mind you, callum Milford could race with the women.
