Well-known starting field at Challenge Roth

The Hawaii champions meet again this year at the triathlon classic in Roth.

In addition to two-time Ironman World Champion Patrick Lange, Sebastian Kienle, 2014 World Championship winner, and Anne Haug, 2019 World Champion, will lead the well-known starting field on July 3rd. The organizers announced this at a press conference in Nuremberg on Thursday.

In addition, the top American athlete Sam Long, second at the World Championships over the half-distance, as well as the two German top-class athletes Andreas Böcherer and Maurice Clavel will compete over the 3.86 kilometers of swimming, 180.2 kilometers of cycling and 42.2 kilometers of running . “This starting field is unique in Europe this year – and that despite two Ironman World Championships,” stressed race director Felix Walchshöfer.

Last year Haug and Lange won in Roth. Born in Hesse, he is still recovering from a fall on the bike that injured his shoulder joint. As a result, he had to cancel his start at the Ironman World Championships, which will take place in St. George on May 7th. It is the catch-up date elsewhere for the World Cup last year in Hawaii. The title for this year will be awarded there in October.
