Defending champion Bradley will banner a stellar field in the XTERRA Albay 2016 on February 7 in the Province of Albay. Out to foil Weiss bid are 2015 male pro third-placer Ben Allen of Australia, 2015 fourth placer Brodie Gardner also of Australia, Charlie Epperson of Guam, Joseph Miller of the Philippines and Michal Bucek of Slovakia, who are all returning to Albay. The women’s pro crown, meanwhile, is up for grabs as 2015 winner Flora Duffy, the world titlist from Bermuda, has opted to skip this year’s event to concentrate on her campaign in the Rio Olympics. Australians Jacqui Slack, the runner-up last year, and third placer Dimity Lee Duke head the contenders in the distaff side along with Mieko Carey of Guam, who placed fourth last time. Pros Lizzie Orchard, Taylor Charlton, Cameron Paul, Cameron O’Neal, and Jon Slaney are making their debut in the 2016 edition.
