ROTH / PRAGUE. The biggest long-distance triathlon in the world has partnered with indoor cycling platform, ROUVY. Through the partnership, athletes all over the world can train on their home indoor trainer on the virtual ROTH bike course around the clock, 365 days a year.
Triathlon fans will also benefit from regular virtual events, as well as group rides and can chase their own course records at any time. Newcomers can get to know Roth in advance through virtual course recces thanks to the platform’s ultra-realistic depiction of the course.
For Felix Walchshöfer, the partnership is a great fit for the race and commitment to 'all about the athlete'. "The partnership with ROUVY is a huge benefit for all our athletes who are involved with the race year-round. Thanks to ROUVY, athletes now have additional options: everyone can now perfectly prepare for our bike course from home, whether it's a virtual ride from Greding to Solarer Berg or even the full 180 km."
Petr Samek, CEO of ROUVY: “This partnership with such an important sport event as Challenge Roth makes a lot of sense for ROUVY. Triathletes form an important part of our community and we have no doubt that this is one of the best ways to make their training experience even better.”
