Stockholm Replaces Lausanne on the ITU World Series Calendar

Stockholm will now host the mixed relay world champs as well as the sixth round of the ITU World Series

Stockholm has replaced Lausanne on the ITU World Series Circuit after the Swiss city had to withdraw from the series due to insufficient funding.

It’ll be the first time since 1997 that Stockholm has hosted and ITU race, and is seen as a great boost for the profile of triathlon in the Nordic region.

April 14 – Sydney, Australia

May 11-12 – San Diego, California

May 26-27 – Madrid, Spain
