With less than a month to go before CHALLENGEPEGUERA-MALLORCA middle distance triathlon takes place, registrations for the third consecutive year are SOLD OUT. With not a single one of the 1100 places left, the popularity of the event and it’s consolidation as one of the best end of season triathlons in Europe has been confirmed.
Who’s going to triumph in the Pro Field?
This year will see a stunning pro field in the main race, probably the best ever of all the editions so far. In the women’s pro field, the battle for the CHALLENGEPEGUERA-MALLORCA 2019 throne is likely to be between Radka Kahlefeldt (CZE), the current favourite to win the CHALLENGEFAMILY World Bonus ranking 2019, and Fenella Langridge (UK), who wants to repeat last year’s great swim and bike performance, but improve her run to be on top of the podium, and not forget the 2017 winner, Judith Corachan from Spain.
In the men’s pro field, favourites include the Spanish athlete, Pablo Dapena, who wants to retain his title of CHALLENGEPEGUERA-MALLORCA champion 2018. But he’s not alone in his quest to repeat history. The 2016 CHALLENGEPEGUERA-MALLORCA champion, Pieter Heemeryck (BEL) is in a good shape and wants to become the first pro to win two titles. Ruedi Wild (CH) will be coming to the Spanish island with the aim of becoming the first Swiss man to win CHALLENGEPEGUERA-MALLORCA.
