Itís time for the World Cup tour to arrive in Mexico for the 2019 Huatulco ITU Triathlon World Cup.
The Elite Women will line up on Sunday and itís USAís Summer Rappaport who will be sporting number 1 and lead the Women into Huatulco. Rappaport leads into the race with confidence, after a remarkable performance in the recent World Triathlon Series race in Yokohama, where she was awarded the Silver Medal.
Four women will be competing as a part of the ASICS World Triathlon Team including Bermudaís Erica Hawley.
Fellow USA team member Kirsten Kasper returns to racing after an extended period of time off due to injury. As itís Kasperís first race back in 2019, the talented American triathlete, who is thrilled to be back lining up and racing the best, will be looking to make an impact on the field from the start.
Austriaís Lisa Perterer will be among the women to watch and has been known to have success in Mexico with fourth place in 2018. Since 2012, she has stepped on the podium in five World Cup races hosted in Mexico, including Huatulco in 2013.
The Elite Womenís field is stacked with experience and possible podium contenders including Australiaís Charlotte McShane and Mexicoís own Claudia Rivas, Adriana Barraza and Michelle Flipo, who will have their focus on earning a medal in front of a home crowd.
