“TriStar are pushing the endurance barriers and setting new unique challenges that are interesting and tough. I have committed to TriStar because they continue to present spectacular events that are designed with the athlete in mind. TriStar approach race organisation in the same way I approach my racing and it is because of this I feel sound in my decision to work with them." says Chris McCormack, a multiple World Champion at various distances, owning both of the biggest titles in the sport of triathlon, an ITU World Championship and an Ironman World Championship title.
Macca’s long-term commitment (5 years+) to TriStar will be three-fold. McCormack will be racing most of the races this year and in the future. McCormack becomes member of the technical and the advisory board. McCormack will develop and give support in implementing the TriStar Series in Australia.
On 6 JUN 2010, the Australian will be racing TriStar111 Germany in Worms. “I love racing in Germany. It is a country that has been very kind to me in my career and I have won many of my biggest events in Germany. Competing in Lothar’s event in Worms will be lots of fun. Lothar is an athlete I raced extensively over the years and to support his race is something I am excited about doing.” Macca will also be racing TriStar111 Estonia on 7 AUG 2010, TriStar111 Monaco on 5 SEP 2010, and an additional TriStar race yet to be announced soon. “I think good support from some key endurance racers from many different sports such as cycling and triathlon adds speed to the pointy end of the racing field and gives the racing amateurs a point of reference to build towards in the future.”
“The boom in mass participation endurance events globally stems from the very fact that people are looking for a physical challenge that will test them, in a fun environment.” McCormack adds. Through the partnership with TriStar on all organisational levels, it is sure that he will be contributing to even more enjoyable races.
