With amazingly strong athletes including Sebastian Kienle, Lucy Charles, Florian Angert, Radka Kahlefeldt, David McNamee, Ben Kanute, Ellie Salthouse, Frederic Funk, Daniela Bleymehl, Alexandra Tondeur, Joe Skipper and Pieter Heemeryck all on the pro list for THECHAMPIONSHIP, spectators are guaranteed a more than spectacular and exciting race this upcoming Sunday June 2.
At 9.00am the pro men will dive into the water for their 1900m swim, while the women will follow ten minutes later at 9.10am. The one lap swim will be followed by a 90km fast and very flat bike course through the surroundings of Samorin. Last but not least, there will be a half marathon run around the venue of X-Bionic Sphere to conclude the race. The event will be broadcasted live on Slovakian and Czech television and via the CHALLENGEFAMILY website and Facebook, so it’ll be be very exciting to see which pro is going to be first to cross the finish line and claim the title.
There will be 33 pros at the start of the men’s race. It’s likely to be Sebastian Kienle, runner up in the last 2 years, whom people are expecting the most of. Not a really big surprise, because the German is in great shape and won CHALLENGEHEILBRONN just a week ago. ,,Only talking about this race makes me smile already. I know what it takes to win here and I’m really aiming for this, because this race is definitely a classic amongst the pros.”
