I just got an email informing me that if I do not hold a tri license from France, UK, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal or the Netherlands, I will need to purchase a one day French licence from FFTri. The link in the email takes me to a page specifically for a license for the men's race at 70.3 Worlds where I am charged 40 euro, or $45 US for the one day license. That is almost as much as an annual USAT license ($50)!!
I've raced in Norway, Austria, New Zealand and the US and I've never needed an additional license to my USAT one.
