Laurent Vidal will be recognised at the opening event of the world triathlon season in Abu Dhabi this weekend.

The number one position in both the men's and women's start lists will be left open as a tribute to the popular Frenchman who died suddenly late last year.

Vidal was engaged to Kiwi triathlete Andrea Hewitt.
