This racing weekend promises to be one of the greatest half distance events ever. The Championship from the Challenge Family in Slovakia will host a field of the greatest long course and ITU athletes ever assembled.
Alistair Brownlee will take on the world’s best, but with his perfect distance racing record, who would bet against him. Richard Varga will also don his Dave Scott suit and take on the longer distance in his home country of Slovakia.
Yet again the Dave Scott long course will feature as one of the most popular distance race-suits. Now available in a series of colours and patriot designs, what colour will suit you?
All the action is live from Challenge where athletes will enter the water in their HUUB swim hats and navigate the HUUB Swim before they embark on 56 miles of mind bending speed followed by what is expected to be a sub 1hr 10 minute 13.1 mile run. This is one event not to be missed.
As of yet we don’t know whether it will be a wetsuit swim but keep an eye out for which of the Albacore Suits the 2 x Olympic Champion, Alistair Brownlee, will be racing in.
First out of the water in Rio 2016, Richard Varga, will no doubt be leading the way in the swim. He has chosen the world’s most popular long course suit from the Dave Scott Range to give him that competitive edge.
