Photos: Triathletes Around Nice at the Men’s 2023 Ironman World Championship

Nice, the crown jewel of the French Riviera, welcomes over 2,200 Ironman triathletes and their friends, family, and supporters for the first-ever world championship outside of the United States this week. It’s also the first world championship to split the men’s and women’s fields, with the men racing in Nice this week and the women racing in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii on October 14.

The men’s race takes place on Sunday, September 10, and the Mediterranean city has gradually been overtaken by spandex-clad, time-trial bike riding athletes getting ready for the race of a lifetime. Triathlete‘s team has been on the ground all week, talking with athletes, photographing pro athlete bikes, and capturing the spirit of both the historic event and the city. Enjoy a selection of shots from our photographers of triathletes adapting to the Niçois way as they preview the swim, bike, and run courses, participate in the Parade of Nations, and soak up all that the Côte d’Azur has to offer.
