Challenge Family has a deep history in the sport.  However, for most people in north America who I contact, many do not have the means to go to Europe or other places to race the Challenge series.  But it is without a shadow of a doubt, I know that the series is above par from what athletes in the America’s have come to expect from their traditional 70.3 and 140.6 distance races.  These races raise the bar on many levels.  But in regards to the two interviews below, I would note that Challenge Prague starts a bit later in the morning, allowing athletes to sleep in a bit.  I hope to have many more athletes come on and talk about their races at Challenge!
