Top International Pro Field starts CHALLENGE Salou

Friday 05 April 2019
CHALLENGE SALOU will feature a spectacular professional field on Sunday April 07. "It´s my third year to compete in CHALLENGE SALOU and for sure this edition will be the toughest one with this awesome pro list. I am exited to compare my level with these strong guys after a long winter training and I am aiming for the first place!", says last year´s runner up Pablo Dapena, who is highly motivated to face top athletes such as Pieter Heemeryck, winner of the inaugural CHALLENGE DAYTONA in 2018, Boris Stein from Germany and Daniel Baekkegard from Denmark.

On the women´s side Daniela Bleymehl, CHALLENGE ROTH Champion of 2018, is ready to have a first hard test of the early triathlon season. "I am really looking forward to the start of the season after more than six months without racing. My preparation has been very good and especially in the last weeks of training I could gain confidence for the season. This race is going to be a good test to see where I am right now", says Bleymehl. She will face major competitors with Judith Corachan (ESP) and Margie Santimaria (ITA) who also return to Salou after their first and third place in 2018.

After closing registrations on February 22, CHALLENGE SALOU underlines its international prestige with a spectacular field of triathletes from 40 countries and 78 professional triathletes who will take part in the PRO start list.

The event will have a total of 1050 participants who will swim 1.9km, cycle 90km and run 21.1km in HALF and HALF RELAY distances; and swim 1,9km, cycle 60km and run 11km in the SHORT distance. With a fast 3 laps cycling and a running course along the promenade, the race will be right in the spotlight of the Costa Daurada. In addition, the race can be followed on streaming through the official social networks. What makes the race even more attractive is its 25,000 Euros of price money and the chance to qualify for THE CHAMPIONSHIP to be held in Samorin, Slovakia, this June 2.
