The 2021 Challenge Family Pro Athlete World Bonus sees a whopping $150,000 extra prize money going to the top five female and male athletes across the 2021 race season.
This year’s top spots go to the German duo Patrick Lange and Anne Haug, each scoring the most points over the season, which amounted to a whopping 1,950 points for Haug and 1,350 for Lange.
The first place athletes take home a huge $30,000, with second place getting $20,000, third place $14,000, fourth $8,000 and fifth $3,000.
Although Lange and Haug’s leads were never in question, the recent Clash Daytona race sees a few surprise movements in the rankings. Magnus Ditlev’s strong second-place performance, including an impressive bike leg, in Clash Daytona sees him jump from eighth to second in the overall Challenge Family standings.
On the women’s side, Laura Siddall and Nicola Spirig battled it out for fourth spot in the rankings, with Spirig’s fifth in Daytona guaranteeing her the superior spot.
Third position in the overall ranks was secured by Lucy Hall thanks to her strong performance at Clash Daytona, where she was only pipped to the win in the final few kilometres by Jackie Hering.
