ITU racing returns to Cancun for the first time since 2007, but the city is one of the most familiar spots on the ITU calendar. The gorgeous coastal city is one of the longest-serving hosts in ITU history, as it has been the host site of two ITU World Championships and nine World Cup events over the years.
Mexico is also the only country to host two ITU events in the same year, with the city of Huatulco having organized a world cup earlier this year.
