Tyler Butterfield starts as one of the favorites for this Sunday’s Ironman France in Nice. Nice is one of the oldest races on the calendar and steeped in history. Who can forget Mark Allen’s dominance of the race in the 1980’s.The bike course through the foothills of the Alps has 5000 feet of climbing in it and passes through picturesque villages. The finish along Nice’s waterfront is one of the most iconic in triathlon.
