But though the upcoming 1.9km swim-90km bike-21km run event will be just half of the punishing 3.8km-180km-42km race the last time out, Baldwin still expects a tougher outing given the depth of the competing field in the centerpiece pro division.

It includes former 70.3 world champion Tim Reed and multi-titled Sam Betten along with fellow Australians Tim Van Berkel and Conor McKay with Colombia’s Rodrigo Acevedo and Oli Stenning of Great Britain boosting the cast in the men’s division of the event organized by Sunrise Events, Inc.
