The Kona 2014 winner, who also has two Ironman 70.3 world titles under his belt, is headed to the Cannes International Triathlon on April 19, 2015.

Joining Kienle in Cannes are Jan Frodeno, who bagged the men’s tri gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and M-dot titleholders like European champ Bart Aernouts and IM Lanzarote 2014 first-placer Romain Guillaume.

Meanwhile, the pro women set to compete in Cannes include Jenny Fletcher (the triathlon’s ambassador), Leanda Cave (2012 IM and IM 70.3 world champ) and Charlotte Morel (2013 Cannes International Triathlon winner). 

Cannes International Triathlon offers two courses, the L (2km swim / 80km bike / 16km run) and M (1km swim / 40km bike / 8km run), as well as a 10km run race.
