Wahoo was just announced as Challenge Almere-Amsterdam’s new so-called Presenting Partner. “It’s all about time. It’s time to race. It’s time for the World Championships Long Distance Triathlon in Almere. It’s time to announce our new Presenting Sponsor. It’s time for Wahoo”, it sounds in a video announcement that was just released. In one month time – from Sep. 9 until Sep. 12, 2021 – the World Championships Long Distance Triathlon and World Championships Aquabike will take place in Almere. This year’s event is not only extra special because of the World Championships, additionally, it will mark the 40th anniversary of the second-oldest triathlon in the world.
“We are very much looking forward to working with Challenge Family on such an iconic race and to contribute to this significant milestone in its history”, Wahoo Fitness CEO Mike Saturnia comments. Wahoo Fitness and Challenge Family were already familiar with each other, as Wahoo was already a Global Partner of Challenge Family, but the partnership now specifically focuses on Challenge Almere-Amsterdam, the organization stated in the press release. “Challenge Family has been instrumental in our focus on the sport of triathlon, so it makes perfect sense for us to expand our support for this event”, Saturnia continues to say. “We have several great plans to have our Wahoo Elemnt Rival Multisport watch play a prominent role in Almere, both leading up to and during Challenge Almere-Amsterdam.”
Challenge Family CEO Jort Vlam, is proud to welcome Wahoo Fitness on board of Challenge Family and specifically Challenge Almere-Amsterdam. “Almere this year is of course dedicated to forty years of triathlon history, indeed a milestone in the history of our race and also a milestone in the history of triathlon in general”, he said. “We are the second-oldest Long Distance triathlon in the world and right now, when everything is about ‘time’ and milestones, we are immensely proud that a wonderful brand like Wahoo Fitness is coming to strengthen our race.”
In the upcoming weeks there will be some nice promotions available for athletes, Vlam adds: “In the coming weeks – and we’ll be starting on very short notice from now – we’re going to be raffling off no less than forty Wahoo Elemnt Rival sport watches, Wahoo’s newest and recently launched model, among our athletes. For this we have come up with some very nice and diverse promotions. In the coming period you will see these promotions and how to win via our website and social media.”
