Pure emotions at the finish line

Pure emotions at the finish line
At the end of the DATEV Challenge Roth, the stadium turns into a party zone

 

It is the emotional ending of an emotional day: The finish line party at the trithlon stadium in Roth. On Sunday night, some 3000 people celebrated all around the finish line.

And after such a day, there was no shortage of reasons to celebrate. Not only because Challenge Roth (15 years) and its main sponsor DATEV (50 years) both had anniversaries to celebrate this years. Also because the two endurance athletes Jan Frodeno and Daniela Ryf presented the spectatores with record times. Jan broke the world record and Daniela was the fastest woman ever on the bike course. The perfect weather conditions added further to the great atmosphere and were a blessing for the amatuer athletes in the field of starters. The fans and volunteers also wanted to celebrate themselves (at least a little bit), for, once again, creating many goosebump-moments, even for veteran athletes, throughout the race day. Who could possibly blame them!

Therefore it was more than a nice compensation, that TeamChallenge thanked the „world's greatest trithlon fans“ (quote from DATEV Challenge organizers Alice, Felix und Katrin Walchshöfer) with a spectacular closing ceremony. There were firework, live-acts, a festive mood a heartfelt „THANK YOU“ and finally a „See you next year“.
