Environmental Care:

As an athlete you have to take care of your body every day. As a triathlete you enjoy yourself swimming in clear waters, cycling across lush countryside and running while breathing fresh air. That's why Star Events pledges to protect the environment in partnership with the 4vita Foundation.Take care of nature as you would your body. You want to benefit from it all your life!

4vita is the environmental plan which includes environmental and health actions during each Star Events race.

4Vita at TriStar Cannes

In collaboration with Cannes town council, the 4vita waste disposal plan: Ensure that all waste is accounted for through the collection mangagement schem. That all athletes are aware of the importance of the Eco-Zones and do away with their waste there and only there.

The start from the beach was cancelled by the Marshals because of high waves, for security reasons

All the athletes started running from the exit of the swim area and went running to the Transition 1 to start the bike leg.

TriStar has a slight focus on the bike section of each race, which is quite obvious when looking at the breakdown of the distances. Additionally, all races try to feature special bike layouts that remain in people's heads.

TriStar Cannes Bike Course is specially demanding and tough!

Here's the bike map:

 

And the corresponding profile:

Tha participants start at 8:30 rom the water with the pros ahead - they wear differently colored swimcaps so they are easier to distinguish. It's a swim around 3 buoys before the athletes can exit the water. 1000m for the TriStar111 athletes and half the distance for the 55.5, with the same start and exit areas.

TriStar 55.5 will start at 11:00 only, so there's enough time to cheer on the 111 athletes in the meantime! Here's the 55.5 map:

Good Morning - it's Race Day!

FacebookDiggTwitter

It's raining here in Cannes after a quiet night - athletes went to bed earlier than usual, and have gotten up earlier than usual, too. Well, not as early as in other races most probably, that's thanks to shorter distances in TriStar! :-)

The bike park is opened for the 111 athletes, and they will pump their tyres, prepare the bikes and get ready for the race while wishing each other a good day.

We're looking forward to an exciting race with the impressive start list we'll have, and it will certainly be an exciting day, also here on TriStarLive.com. Thanks for being here!

Quotes from the pre-race press conference at TriStar Cannes

FacebookDiggTwitter



Manuela Garelli, Race Director

“This is a unique format, in a unique place, for a unique race. TriStar111 Cannes offers all athletes its traditional triathlon: 1 km of swimming in the crystal waters of the Mediterranean, followed by breathtaking cycling through picturesque villages and on top of all, a running course of 10 km in the center of Cannes arriving at the steps of the Festival Hall. Welcome to Cannes to all the athletes and organizers and thanks in advance for a great day tomorrow.”
Laurent Gauthier, President of Star Events (organizer)
“We are so glad to organize this great race in one of the best destinations in France. Cannes, Deauville and Lyon are three of the TriStar events with most participants. Local and international triathletes definitely know what TriStar stands for and that they will have a high quality event organized for them. Everyone will feel like a pro athlete.”
Olivier Marceau (SWI), World Champion, olympic and three times TriStar winner
"I’m looking forward to racing ‘at home’ tomorrow. I perfectly know these roads, these streets and I would like to ride and run fast to try to keep the victory at home. It’s going to be very tough as the bike course is demanding and the start list is full of great athletes.”
Daniel Fontana (ITA), Olympic and 8:18:00 Ironman competitor
“My background is similar to the one of Marceau as I also came from the Olympic distance and I feel that this format suits me perfectly. I don’t know the bike course, I only saw the maps on the internet and it looks very tough. The bike is going to be the key factor for sure to fight for the podium tomorrow.”
Adeline Rausis (SUI), pro triathlete
“I have planned to participate in some other TriStar races this year (Lyon, Deauville and Monaco). I really like the format and these races are perfect to compete, to train and to get an extra motivation to keep practicing triathlon.”
Paul Belmondo, former pro athlete, professional driver and TriStar Ambassador
“As an official TriStar Ambassador I can’t wait to start racing tomorrow in Cannes. I train here a lot, and I will try to finish under 5 hours… Hope the forecast is wrong and we will see the sun tomorrow and enjoy Cannes this international triathlon”.
Lucas Di Grassi (BRA), F1 driver
“I have already participated in a TriStar race in Monaco in 2010, and then triathlon became my hobby. I love the way TriStar is organizing sport events this is why we merged forces and we started up Star Events South America, based in Brazil. Together we created a good team which will announce a TriStar111 in Brazil for 2012 this season very shortly. I cannot compete with the PRO athletes I’m just here to have fun, to practice a lovely sport as a good way to stay fit for the Formula 1 and to share this experience and great moments with some friends.”
Stéphane Diagana (FRA) former pro athlete and Olympic gold medallist:
“I’m part of a Relay Team, I will swim 1 km –my first time in the sea!– and then my mates will finish the race. We will cross the finish line together. I’m so excited, and I will try to do my best and have a really nice day!”

Located on the Côte d'Azur, Cannes is a very dynamic and attractive town for its cultural life and its touristic side. It is also the venue of one of the most famous international festivals; and actually, Cannes itself could be described as "giant cinema scenery". TriStar Cannes is positioned at the top of the European calendar for 2012, and brings a unique opportunity to start the season in France offering athletes and their families the possibility to enjoy this little paradise on the Mediterranean coast. Fun is guaranteed and triathletes can show their qualities in the same streets as those walked by the actors during the Cannes Film Festival.

Jenson Button at TriStar MonacoFollowing the success of the TriStar series in France in 2011 and the massive participation of professional and amateur athletes, the TriStar Cannes comes this year as the major event of the start of the season, and will be held on Sunday 29th from 8:30 AM
1 km long swimming part takes place on the beach in the quay Laubeuf in Cannes. The loop of 100 km bike ride starts on the Croisette and takes competitors to Grasse and rugged mountains of the hinterland. The breathtaking views and picturesque villages of the bike ride are some of the highlights of this triathlon in Cannes. The 10 km running part is made of two loops round trip on the well-known promenade Croisette, starting from the famous Palais des Festivals going to Palm Beach and will lead participants to the Finishline located on the Esplanade de La Pantiero.

And the Nominees are:
Among the favorites for victory, there are many French athletes belonging to the world's top in long distance. The French contingent will be represented among others by François Chabaud and Hervé Faure, respectively second at Ironman France and winner of last year’s Embrunman. The Franco-Swiss Olivier Marceau, already a triple-winner in TriStar races (Monaco in 2010, Mallorca in 2011 and Nevis in 2012), will surely excel on the track he knows by heart, living currently on Côte d’Azur. The foreign forces, including Daniel Fontana (ITA) and Joe Skipper (GBR), will also want to have a say at the second TriStar in European season that already promises an exciting show!

As for women, the suspense will be just as intense: will it be one of the French triathletes Jeanne Collonge or Delphine Pelletier, the Danish Simone Friis, the Swiss triathlete Adeline Rausis, or the Hungarian  Gabriella Zelinka that will be able to win this inaugural TriStar Cannes? Looking at the relays, two French professional triathletes Alexandra Louison and Charlotte Morel will be fighting for a victory in the mixed relays category.

A MOVIE TRIATHLON! VIPs and F1 drivers

As the red carpet suggests, many celebrities will be present to open the first TriStar Cannes. Among them, Paul Belmondo, patron of the event, well used to the 111 distance, who has already raced TriStar111 Monaco twice and TriStar Nevis at the very beginning of this year’s season. Stéphane Diagana, one of the most charismatic French athletes of his generation will be on the start line and goes straight for the king distance, since the former World Champion in 400m hurdles chose to go for the 111 kilometers. Several racing drivers will also participate in the 29 April race on the Croisette. The former world champion Jenson Button (Great Britain), Lucas Di Grassi (Brazil) and Alexander Wurz (Austria) will be ready to fight amidst of thousand participants of the event.
