The pro start list includes some big names like Joe Skipper, who recently broke bike records at Ironman Texas, ex-ITU racer David McNamee and Lucy Gossage, winner of last month’s Ironman 70.3 Staffs. Both of the 2014 winners are absent though, with neither Cyril Viennot nor Tamsin Lewis racing this weekend.
