THECHAMPIONSHIP welcomes Collins Cup and is ready for ‘most amazing triathlon weekend’ ever
Thanks to the today announced Collins Cup, CHALLENGEFAMILY‘s THECHAMPIONSHIP is even more ready to welcome all the best athletes from all over the world. On May 30 a selective group of the 36 best pros will race head-to-head for the biggest prize purse in triathlon history and one day later, May 31st, another 60 pros will race at the classic CHALLENGEFAMILY‘s flagship event THECHAMPIONSHIP for a prize purse of another 50.000 dollar.
CHALLENGEFAMILY‘s CEO Jort Vlam explains the importance of a ‘high quality’ weekend like this, which of course will take place at the iconic x-bionic sphere in Samorin, Slovakia. “With two world-class races and a prize purse never seen before, this weekend attracts the best pro athletes from all around the globe. Spectators are guaranteed the most exciting races ever seen. Not only when they are at x-bionic sphere, but also when they watch the live broadcastings on television or online.”
THECHAMPIONSHIP still counts for the CHALLENGEFAMILY World Bonus for pros and the pros will – like last year – earn double points in Slovakia. “This will also attract even more world-class athletes”, Vlam explains. “Double points of course give a bigger chance to win the end-of-the-season bonus, but that also reflects the strength of the large field of pro’s who are eager to perform their best at THECHAMPIONSHIP.”
Age Groupers qualified for THECHAMPIONSHIP will be very excited with the addition of the Collins Cup to the event weekend. “They are the happy few that are not only able to race a Middle Distance at the amazing venue x-bionic has to offer, but they will also race between and be cheered on by the most prestigious athletes of the world!”
