Kitzbühel, Austria (14 June 2011) - The battle for the 2011 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series is back this weekend in Kitzbühel after one of the shortest rests in the 2011 - with just one weekend between Madrid and the Austrian round.
This year, all eyes are set to be on Canadian Paula Findlay as she defends a title for the first time. She will be gunning for her third straight victory of 2011 as she is in reach of capturing five Dextro Energy Triathlon Series race titles to become the most successful woman in the series. Among the men, Alistair Brownlee will be looking for his second win in a row in 2011 - particularly with the two series leaders, Javier Gomez and Jonathan Brownlee sitting this round out.

About the race:
Kitzbühel is one of the smallest host cities on the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series circuit, but it's quickly become one of the most popular as athletes and fans alike take in the charming town set at the foot of the Austrian Alps. It has a steep and hilly bike course that always factors in the final podium. The town of just 8,400 residents is known as an year-round destination for sports and outdoor lovers but was first known for its skiing, with the surrounding mountains having some of the toughest runs in Europe.
