• Superb Sprint World Championship in HungarySuperb Sprint World Championship in Hungary
    We have just experienced a great weekend of racing at the Sprint World Championships in Kaposvár. The Q30 quadrathlon took place as part of the eXtremeMan Triathlon on the Deseda Lake.

With the usual favourites on the start line again, Tomas Svoboda (CZE), William Peters (BEL) und Ferenc Csima (HUN), the race… Read more »

    Just one week after the middle distance European Championship race in Tyn, Czech Republic, it was time for the sprint distance race. The race venue this year was the Koberbachtalsperre near Zwickau, Germany.

  • Hungarian Wold Cup updateHungarian Wold Cup update
    Unfortunately the planned competition in Tolna (03.08.) has to be cancelled. The organizer has the permission only for one day and therefore had to reduce the program (also the Quadrathlon). Thanks to the national federation in Hungary could be found quickly a replacement. On 08.9. the World Cup will take place in Tiszafüred. There is already a small but well organized triathlon event taking place, where the Quadrathlon can be well integrated. It is pleasing that it is a middle distance and therefore we have more choice on this distance.
