The 25 athletes in the 32 km Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean in Roberval, Québec can be seen live tomorrow on the Internet here.
The webcast across lac St-Jean will begin at 7:30 am local time (New York time) and the actual 32 km crossing will begin at 8 am with the athletes listed below. Pre-race favorites Alexander Studzinski, Damian Blaum will be pushed hard by Edoardo Stochino and Xavier Desharnais under what is expected to be great (sunny and warm) conditions. However, the water temperature has fluctuated between 13ºC (55ºF)) and 19ºC (66ºF) this past week.
So you never quick now especially since the surface water temperature can rapidly change (i.e., fall) by 5ºC or more within 15 minutes.
On the women’s side, pre-race favorites and veterans Pilar Geijo and rival Esther Nunez Morera will be challenged by the young Russian Olga Kozydub
