CHALLENGE St Polten AUT Pro Start List

Friday 24 May 2024

Over 1,700 athletes from 36 nations will line up at Challenge St Pölten this weekend, including an 80-strong pro field who will race not only with Challenge Family’s 20m drafting rule enforced, but also with anti-drafting technology, Race Ranger.

In the men’s pro field, two former winners will race. Thomas Hug (GER) will return with the goal to defend his 2023 title with one win under his belt already this season. But he will face stiff competition from 2022 winner, Nicolas Mann (GER). Also lining up is local athlete, Michael Weiss (AUT), top ranked Slovakian athlete, Ondrej Kubo and Ognjen Stojanovic (SRB), fresh from his second place at Challenge Cesenatico.

In the women’s race, Daniela Kleiser (GER) could be the one to beat with one podium to her name already this season but she will be up against Gabriele Obmann who recently took third at Challenge Cesenatico, top Finnish athlete Tiina Pohjalainen and Milan Agnew (AUS) as she makes the transition from short to long course racing with a third in her first attempt.

The race also doubles as the Austrian National Championships and will be shown live on Austrian TV and through www.challenge-family.live.

Challenge St Pölten will take place on Sunday 26 May with the start gun for the pro women at 7:00am CEST, followed by the pro men at 7:20am and the first wave of age group athletes at 7:30am. For further information, visit http://www.challenge-stpoelten.comwww.challenge-stpoelten.com.
