Montreal Demi Esprit course preview

Daniel Clarke returns to Montreal Demi Esprit, a place where he's had success at before

This weekend I’m going to be racing the Montreal Demi Esprit half iron distance triathlon. This will be my second time racing the Demi Esprit. I raced the 2016 edition, which was the first race of any kind that I won. The Montreal Demi Esprit is a unique race because it all takes place in a confined space around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. You swim in a rowing basin, followed by 21 laps of the race track, and then finish with 4.5 laps around the rowing basin on the run. A bonus of this race is there’s a UCI road race in Montreal on the Sunday (the Demi Esprit is Saturday) that bring in all the big grand tour cycling teams.
