Europe Triathlon partners with XTERRA for the 2021 Europe Triathlon Cross Duathlon and Triathlon Championships Dolomiti Paganella. Europe Triathlon is excited to add these events to the 2021 calendar. Renato Bertrandi the president of Europe Triathlon said “I am very delighted that the 2021 European Champs of Cross Triathlon and Duathlon have been assigned to XTERRA.  Europe Triathlon has already, since years, had a good collaboration with other professional Organisers and we are happy to start this new experience with the objective to establish a medium term collaboration. We will be working together to harmonise the competition rules and we will be able to offer our Athletes a unique experience in 2021.”

This is guaranteed to be a unique experience, the venue is spectacular and the racing spectator friendly, if circumstances allows this by then of course. “The municipalities of Molveno and Andalo in the heart of Brenda Dolomites are the perfect location for our sport, a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast and offers the perfect infrastructure for an event like this. Athletes will have the chance to swim in the crystal clear waters of the most beautiful lake in Italy and ride and run through the beautiful forest tracks and trails. We strongly believe that this event will attract not only a big number of athletes but also their friends and families that can join them in visiting the region. If you are looking for a holiday in the gorgeous landscape of the Dolomites, to fully enjoy sports, nature and outdoor activities, this is the perfect place to go. See you in 2021!!”

The marketing director of XTERRA Europe, Konstantinos Koumargialis expressed how this is an opportunity to bring multisport to this location and build closer relationships with European triathlon federations. “XTERRA Europe is delighted to join Europe Triathlon in hosting the 2021 Cross Triathlon and Cross Duathlon championships. With the support of Trentino and the Dolomiti Paganella regions, the cooperation with the Italian Triathlon Federation and our expertise we are very excited to bring multi sport to this beautiful location. We set out to bring XTERRA in closer relationships with the European federations to allow us to work together in growing the sport. I would like to thank our XTERRA European team and our Italian partners for realising this project.”

Luca D’Angelo the Dolomiti Paganella Tourism Board Managing Director said “It is a real honor for us as Dolomiti Pagenalla - Trentino to host such a great international event. We are really excited to organize, after the first international Xterra Short Track Race in 2020, another epic race, and we are looking forward to sharing this adventure with our mountain community. We really believe  that our  destination could become a favorite hotspot for all the professional triathletes and amateur looking for stunning Dolomites landscape, great tourism facilities, and a wide range of outdoor experiences for all the family as well”
