“Unfortunately, no PTO Edmonton for me.” Denmark’s talented Magnus Ditlev won’t be present in Edmonton to race the PTO Canadian Open this weekend. “Racing Roth took a big toll on me both physically and mentally, and it has been difficult to get back into a great rhythm again”, he explains. Ditlev only raced his second Long Distance ever when he won Challenge Roth in an incredibly fast time on Jul. 3.

“We’ve decided to sit this one over and start prepping for the PTO events later in the year and Kona”, Ditlev explains. “Always knew it would be a tight turnaround aiming to do both Roth and Edmonton, but luckily there are still lots of opportunities left this year.”
