Magnus Ditlev, Frederic Funk, Kyle Smith and Belinda Granger, among many others, will land on Rouvy to meet, train and race online with the international tri community. From November 24th to 27th, anyone can join the unique series of group rides, races and webinars from home and try to challenge renowned triathlon stars with real power effort, and on real routes. Rouvy and Challenge Family invite triathletes all over the world to learn, train and experience the iconic and remarkable event locations of Roth, Almere, Šamorín, Wanaka and many other Challenge Family races.
The Triathlon Fall Fest on Rouvy is a series of unique online events that gives both experienced athletes and newbies the opportunity to train, compete and learn with and from some of the best professional triathletes in the world. There’ll be rides and races on Challenge Family courses, workshops with experts, prizes and the chance to connect with some of the best professional triathletes in the world. TFF brings together pro athletes, the education on nutrition, equipment, training and the best routes the Challenge Family has.
For the virtual tri fest, Rouvy and Challenge Family have gathered an impressive lineup of pro athletes such as Magnus Ditlev, Frederic Funk, Fenella Langridge, Kyle Smith, Ondrej Kubo, Lucy Byram, Lucy Buckingham, Rach McBride, Tom Davis, and Pablo Dapena González. They are joined by experts such as Petr Vabrousek, Belinda Granger, Jort Vlam, Simona Krivankova and commentator Tomas Budka.
With such events, Rouvy is connecting the pros and community to learn from each other, have training fun, recon future race locations, and catch the pre-winter training vibe. More importantly, it all happens online – without the necessity to buy plane tickets or leave the comfort of one’s own training room. To get ready for the main weekend events, athletes are welcome to join the Challenge and the workout program. Finally, all participants have a good chance to win cool gear prizes. It comes with one tagline “A virtual triathlon experience like no other.”
