Austria is apparently the country to go in terms of triathlon racing. At least, both Ironman and Challenge Family have named races in this country as the best race of the year. Two weeks back Challenge St. Pölten won the Award for best race at Challenge Family, and yesterday Ironman Zell am See was named best Ironman 70.3 of the year 2023. Below are videos of both races so you can see for yourself the charm of these races.
