Saturday Program

FacebookDiggTwitter

Today was the first day packed with official program here in Lyon. The Star&Co opened it's doors and 50 athletes picked up their race packs and the welcome present - a backpack from zoot. The press conference were held, and all the TriStar team works on the last details of the very first TriStar in France!

Today it's the last day before TriStar Lyon. On the program:

  • Athlete registration from 9:00-13:00
  • Check in of bikes and bags from 13-18:00

Then most probably participants will try to hit the sack early, while the organisers will make sure everything is in place - it pretty much feels like it and all are looking forward to a great race day.

Here on TriStarLive.com you'll get more impressions from Lyon, an overview about the funniest race slogans of participants, a preview on the course, all accompanied by some images and short video clips. Hope you enjoy, and if you have feedback, click on the link in the top right corner! ;)

Quotes from the Press Conference

FacebookDiggTwitter

Press Conference at Lyon City Hall

Thierry Braillard, Deputy Mayor in charge of sports in Lyon
“For 10 years, I was dreaming about a triathlon in the city of Lyon. It’s a pleasure to finally have one. I trust Extra Sports and Star Production for this first TriStar in France, I am sure it will be a great success, thanks to support of the city of Lyon.”

Sylvain Sudrie
“I think that TriStar Format is very interesting and everyone can get into a TriStar Race. I hope I will have the same form as last week in the French Championship where I won the title”

François Chabaud
I hope I will have completely recovered from the Ironman France where I finished second. With this TriStar race, I think that Lyon finally has a triathlon that a city like this deserve to have.”

Adeline Rausis
“I am here in Lyon to progress in the 111 format and I will come back in 2012 with this experience to get closer of the win.”

Joel Jameson
"I just get married so the last two weeks was not focused on training but I will do my best on this race and try to stay as long as possible with François and Sylvain.”

Christine Hemphill
“I am looking forward to participate to my first TriStar on those unique distances and especially the 100 km bike which is my strength."
