The brains behind the Bahrain Endurance Racing Team have revealed their grand vision for the project, saying that it aims to set a new standard not only in triathlon but rival sporting teams around the world.
A number of athletes have already been confirmed for the Bahrain Endurance 13 elite team, including:
– Javier Gomez (ESP)
– Jodie Swallow (GBR)
– Tim Don (GBR)
– Jan Frodeno (GER)
– James Cunnama (RSA)
– Brent McMahon (CAN)
– Terenzo Bozzone (NZL)
The full line-up will be revealed later this week.
Former Ironman World Champion Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack said: “This is not just about triathlon, but about endurance racing in all its forms including marathon swimming, cycling, ultra marathons, and more. The Bahrain Endurance 13 counts among its members some of the world’s best athletes not just in triathlon, but in world sport.”
Bahrain’s Prince, His Highness Shaikh Nasser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, is the driving force behind the project, and will be racing alongside other members of Bahrain Endurance 13 at Ironman 70.3 Mallorca this Saturday (9 May).
