ITU WORLD CUP CIRCUIT TOUCHES DOWN IN CHINA


ITU WORLD CUP CIRCUIT TOUCHES DOWN IN CHINA

The ITU World Cup Series moves to Chengdu, the capital of China’s southwest province of Sichuan. Chengdu hosts a World Cup race for the second time this weekend and with Olympic ranking points up for grabs has attracted large international fields for racing on Saturday before age group events take place on Sunday.

Athletes face a largely flat course at Jin Tang, with a two lap swim in the man-made lake before a six lap ride on a largely flat but in places technical course before a four lap run brings the competitors home to the finish line. Incredibly the park surroundings and infrastructure have been purpose built with this event in mind.
