Good morning athletes! It's a great day here in Rio de Janeiro after a quiet and cloudy night - athletes have gotten up earlier than usual. Well, not as early as in other races most probably, that's thanks to shorter distances in TriStar! :-)

The bike park opens in 5 minutes 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!

Get set, ready...
