On April 27, the city of Pontevedra (Spain) will welcome the third edition of the Multisport World Championships, with Ravachol, the funny parrot that will be the mascot, getting ready to show the hometown of Javier Gomez Noya to thousands of triathletes from around the world. And with registration already open for all races, the organising committee has just released a total of thirteen infographics with all the relevant information needed for insights and viewing of each race.
The idea behind the graphics is to provide athletes from all corners of the world with the most accurate description of what they will find while racing in Pontevedra in 100 days. Each of the World Championship races, which will take place between April 27 and May 5, appear ‘radiographed’ on the infographics, helping the public to track the race from their preferred location and providing the athletes with all the information necessary about altitude, discipline segments, fuel stations, mechanic services, turn points, distances and number of laps.
The maps can be downloaded in PDF format from the pontevedra2019.org website, they can also be downloaded in KMZ and GPX format. Each of them consists of a map of the city on which different segments of the races will appear. All the maps have included elevation information of the northern zone (a triangle between Barro and Pontillón do Castro) and also a race course profile with altitudes, especially interesting for the bike segments and the crossing points.
The races which the maps refer to -published only in English- are: aquabike, aquathlon (age group and junior) cross triathlon (elite, age group and junior), duathlon (elite, junior, para duathlon and relay in either sprint or standard distances) and long distance triathlon.
All these maps will be published in paper in the official event magazine, as well as other supporting or advertising publications that will be created for interested athletes and for public information.
