Two-time Ironman world champion Daniela Ryf will be on the start line at Challenge Mogan Gran Canaria this weekend, joining two-time Olympic gold medalist Alistair Brownlee, who is making his half-distance debut at the event.

It will be Ryf's first Challenge event since she won Challenge Roth last year. Over the last few years she's enjoyed a few Challenge titles including Challenge Fuerteventura and Challenge Dubai in 2015 and the Roth title in 2016.

Challenge Mogan Gran Canaria is the opening Challenge series event of the European season, taking in the spectacular terrain and vistas of the Canarian island.
