Brownlee ready for 'tough' Kitzbuehel

Alistair Brownlee says he is relishing the challenge of competing in the Kitzbuehel Triathlon on Saturday.

Olympic champion Brownlee will be facing world champion brother Jonny for the first time this year, with series leader Javier Gomez also competing.

The race starts with a 750m swim in Schwarzsee lake followed by an 11.55km cycle ride that features gradients reaching 22% and a 2.55km run over uphill trails and the course is widely regarded as the toughest in the series.
