A couple years ago, 8 weeks before Jenna's first Ironman she had a gnarly bike crash resulting in a pretty bad concussion and there was a lot of doubt as to whether she would be able to do the race. I reached out to @mbkessler who had gone through a similar experience and I was blown away at the response and support she gave to Jenna that summer. Was pretty awesome that Jenna finally got to meet her in person today and thank her. There is definitely no shortage of really amazing people in this sport. #IM703MT #triathlon #gumption
Last year’s men's champion Jesse Thomas will face furious competition coming from eight men who have a legitimate shot at taking win in Quebec. No doubt Canadians Lionel Sanders and Cody Beals are consider contenders along with Richie Cunningham, Tyler Butterfield Jimmy Seear, Paul Ambrose and Andrew Yoder.
Meredith Kessler is one of the winningest women in the sport right now and poses a threat in any event she shows up to. French Canadian Magali Tisseyre has not only the "home field advantage," but has the necessary talent to put up a fight for the win.
Featured men: Jesse Thomas, Richie Cunningham, Lionel Sanders, Tyler Butterfield, Jimmy Seear, and Cody Beals.
Featured women: Meredith Kessler, Alica Kaye, Magali Tisseyre, and Jessie Donavan.

Athletes will start the 1.2-mile swim on the golden sands of the Beach & Tennis club, right beside the Tremblant pedestrian village. As you swim the 1.2-mile loop, you will enjoy the view of the sheltering mountains around this lovely, pristine lake. Lake Tremblant is a clean freshwater lake, with relatively calm waters at this time of the year; the average water temperature on race day should be a comfortable 65F/18C. The swim ends at Parc Plage, 300 meters from the transition point, at a small beach near the Quintessence, the region’s most luxurious hotels.

Nature lovers will be amazed by the beauty of the original IRONMAN bike course, which runs largely through forests and mountains. The ride features gorgeous natural landscapes with two beautiful rivers that will let you fully enjoy this beautiful part of the province! Cyclists will begin their journey on Montée Ryan to reach Route 117, and, after entering downtown Ville de Mont-Tremblant for a turn-around, they will find themselves back on Montée Ryan and Chemin des Voyageurs, passing the Tremblant Resort and going towards the Municipality of Lac Supérieur on Chemin Duplessis. Here, you’ll notice that the landscape becomes wilder alongside the river. Before long you will face the most challenging elevation change of the circuit with a maximum grade or 8% and beautiful descents on the way back where they can reach speeds of 60 km per hour, a little rest on the legs before reaching transition for the run course.
Dernier moment de calme avant l'action.
