Among the competitors are last year's medalists: Americans Connor Baxter (gold in Technical & Sprint) and the two Frenchmen Noic Garioud (silver in Sprint) and Titouan Puyo  (silver in Long Distance). As well as former medalists: American Fiona Wylde (gold in Technical 2021), Spaniard Esperanza Barreras (gold in Long Distance 2021) and Hungarian Daniel Hasulyo (bronze in Long Distance 2021).
