The ITU World Championship Series has just unveiled the 2010 race Calender and three new cities are now on the Dextro Energy Triathlon circuit:
"The series will be staged in three Olympic cities as well as some of the most important centres of the world. This is a major step forward for our sport," Marisol Casado, President of ITU said.
"The season will be kicked off in style on April 11th with the opening race on the steps of the renowned Sydney Opera House, mirroring the first Olympic Games triathlon in 2000. Premier of New South Wales, Nathan Rees says, “There is no better way to start the 2010 ITU World Championship than on the very course where the Olympic Triathlon was born. This major international event provides another opportunity to showcase Sydney - Australia’s only global city - to the world. And as the best ever Olympics spectacularly demonstrated 10 years ago, there is no better finish line in sport than the Sydney Opera House.” according to the ITU.
"Following Sydney the series moves north to an exciting new venue in central Seoul, South Korea, in early May. The Series then heads to Europe in June stopping in Madrid, Spain, who have just come off a strong 2016 Olympic bid, before the athletes enjoy a brief rest period leading into an intensive summer. July will see races in the spectacular venues of Hamburg, Germany and London, UK before the famous alpine ski resort of Kitzbühel, Austria hosts the penultimate event in August."
