Fast and Furious Nice France 70.3 World Champs Edition

Friday 06 September 2019

The IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship returns to Europe for the first time since 2015 as more than 5,500 professional and age-group athletes from over 100 countries, regions, and territories will descend upon Nice, France on Sept. 7-8, 2019. Among them will be 115 of the world’s top triathletes who will battle for piece of the $250,000 USD total professional prize purse and the world’s most coveted IRONMAN 70.3 titles – World Champion. 

On the men’s side, two-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion Javier Gomez of Spain will be the man to beat. The five-time ITU short-distance World Champion and four-time ETU European Champion has set his sights on recapturing the title that Jan Frodeno of Germany stripped from him last year. Gomez, who won the race in 2014 in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec (CAN) and in 2017 in Chattanooga, Tennessee (USA), will be facing a star-studded field of male competitors, including Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee (GBR), IRONMAN World Champions Sebastian Kienle and Patrick Lange of Germany, two-time Top 5 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship finisher Sam Appleton (AUS), as well as five-time IRONMAN France winner Frederik van Lierde (BEL). American Rodolphe “Rudy” von Berg is a dark horse who could surprise after spending his adolescent years in the area of Nice and is very familiar with the landscape of the course. Notably absent will be defending champion Jan Frodeno who will be focusing on the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i this year.
