2605

Following the final complete inspection of the circuits of the ITU Pontevedra Multisport World Championships 2019 by Santander, the technical officials of the International Triathlon Union and the Spanish Triathlon Federation have decided to implement small variations to refine the bike section of the Duathlon Standard and the Long Distance Triathlon and Aquabike, in order to improve the safety of athletes in the event of rain, avoiding some curves and areas that could present some technical complications during the competition.

So after these slight variations, the new bike course distance of the Long Distance Triathlon and Aquabike will be 108.6 km, and the Standard Duathlon 36.4 km.
