Planning is currently underway for an alternative venue to host the prestigious Triple Crown Series with its record-breaking $1 million prize purse, and this will be announced shortly.

The triathlon world will watch as Daniela Ryf (SUI) and Terenzo Bozzone (NZL) battle against the world’s top pros to keep in the running for triathlon’s ultimate prize and the chance to become an instant millionaire.

“While we are disappointed not to be able to showcase the beauty of Oman to the world, cancelling the race and moving the Triple Crown for 2015 is in the best interests of both the athletes and the local community,” said Challenge Family CEO, Zibi Szlufcik.
