I think they went where the local government offer the most money because I can't see why they would do the race there. Although they had a full iron distance around there that probably doesn't get many people to sign up. I also heard from a pro triathlete that it was the hardest race that he ever did. It will be very likely that the bike portion will be without many spectators unless it is a multi loop course. There is not a huge triathlon community there althou there are some good triathletes like Wesley Matos.
Looking at weather underground it looks like the weather is pretty predictable, a heat index around 90 or a little above with winds from the east at 15-20 mph.
It will be interesting to see where they actually have the race.
