Germany’s Jan Frodeno will take on the iron-distance for the first time since winning October’s Ironman World Championship in Kona. As a recent Kona winner, he’ll simply need to cross the finish line to validate his spot at this year’s Kona race but you can be sure he’ll be going after the win and his share of the $25,000 prize purse. He’ll face off against Romain Guillaume (FRA), Timo Bracht (GER), Ivan Rana (ESP) and Jesse Thomas (USA), as well as several European underdogs have could sneak their way onto the podium.

On the women’s side, the start list is significantly shorter but will be competitive with Diana Riesler (GER) looking to defend her title against a few up-and-coming athletes.
