Coldwell isn't returning to defend her title but Mathias and Perham are joined by Sian Rainsley, Sophie Alden, Morgan Davies, Gordon Benson and Barclay Izzard on the start list, with Matthew Willis the sole British representative in the ETU Triathlon Junior European Cup. Both competitions follow a semi-final (Saturday)/final (Sunday) format.
