Triathlon: Lothar and Nicole Leder participate in TriStar200 Andalucia

Germany's most successful Triathlon couple participates in the brand new TriStar200 Andalucia in Spain on 12 September.

Nicole Leder: "Perfect preparation for the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii"

Nicole and Lother Leder take up completely new challenges on 12 September 2009. Participating in the first edition of TriStar200 Andalucia guarantees a new race sensation with the start discipline of 169km of cycling in a drafting competition. After the 1km swim in the currents of the Guadalquivir and the Atlantic, the chase is on for 30km of running to the Finishline on sand, and everything under the hot sun of Andalusia.

"We've always wanted to do a real adventure race, but we are not so fit in Mountain biking, rock climbing or kayaking. At TriStar200 Andalucia we can participate with the traditional triathlon disciplines, and yet experience an adventure," says Lothar Leder.

The first man finishing an Ironman under the magic barrier of 8 hours is still a step ahead. With his entry in the TriStar200 Andalucia, Lothar Leder will not only face new challenges as a participant, but also wants to live the new concept of the TriStar brand. Leader has won the Ironman Germany 5-times, and placed third in Hawaii twice, each time with the fastest marathon.

"To start this race in Spain together is exciting. The wind and the sun will demand a great deal of all participants, and thus the competition is the best preparation for the Ironman World Championship in October in Hawaii," Nicole is looking forward to the race in Andalucia. "Due to the shorter distances TriStar200 Andalucia fits perfectly into my preparation."

Nicole is also successful in the sport, even more successful than her husband: European Ironman Champion 2007, three additional Ironman victories, and numerous successes in long distance triathlons are on her records.

TriStar200 Andalucia connects the two provinces of Cadiz and Huelva, and it is the first race under the new TriStar brand. It is organized by Star Events and the Empresa Publica de Deporte Andaluz, with the initiative of the Regional Ministry for Tourism, Trade and Sports of the Regional Government of Andalusia. The first 300 participants receive a discounted rate. Applications as individual starter or as relay on www.tristar200andalucia.cc.
