Defending champion Sarah Piampiano (USA) will return to New Orleans this weekend to try to reclaim her title. Piampiano’s biggest competition will come from a strong group of fellow Americans including Caitlin Snow, Amanda Stevens and Laura Bennett. American Andy Potts, who has won the last two years, has decided not to race. American Matt Chrabot is the top returning finisher and he’ll face Andrew Starykowicz (USA), TJ Tollakson (USA) and others.

*Note: Andy Potts and Brent McMahon were originally on the start list and have since decided not to race. The article has been updated for that change.
