Just like last year, the Italian mountain village Asiago will welcome triathletes for the Europe Triathlon Winter Championships and the World Triathlon Winter Cup. The events will take place in the weekend of Feb. 18-19, 2022. Asiago is already familiar with hosting similar events, as they organized the Winter Triathlon World Championships in 2019 and 2020, and the World Triathlon Winter Cup in 2021.

“Winter Triathlon is a discipline in which our federation has decided to invest a lot, starting from the creation of the Winter Triathlon Italian Circuit (also taking place that same weekend, ed.) which will be hosted in four renowned Alpine locations”, the president of the Italian Triathlon Federation, Riccardo Giubilei, said. “Asiago will be a very long and intense weekend. We will start on Friday with the international elite and junior competitions, Saturday is the turn for the Mixed Relay, Para and Age Group races, while on Sunday, on top of the European Championships and Winter Cup, there will be space for the Winter Duathlon open and promotional competitions, an important moment for the Italian movement.”

Europe Triathlon President, Renato Bertrandi, commented: “I am really happy to be able to confirm that the European Winter Triathlon Championships will take place in Asiago. This discipline has not yet expressed its full potential, but to have the most important European event in a location that has demonstrated high organizational standards over the years, it will be a guarantee for Elite athletes and Age Groupers who will battle for the first European title of the 2022 season.”
