EXTREME MAN DÜREN by MAXMO on 1 June 2014
World champion Frederik van Lierde will compete
World triathlon champion Frederik van Lierde has confirmed his participation for the inaugural EXTREME MAN DÜREN by MAXMO on 1 June 2014 in Düren. “I competed in races of the Extreme Man series in Narbonne in November 2012 and in Salou in May 2012. They were fantastic events with a top organisation. That’s why the decision to take part in Düren was very easy for me. And in addition Düren is not far from Belgium, consequently it’s an optimum new Extreme Man race for me“, said the Belgian, who lives at Menen and celebrated his greatest success so far when he won the title at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii about five weeks ago.
“We don’t have a World champion in Düren every day. Frederik van Lierde certainly enhances the Extreme Man Triathlon in Düren even further and highlights the event. We now may look forward to a fantastic race on 1 June 2014 in and around our town”, said Düren’s Mayor and patron of the Extreme Man Düren, Paul Larue.
The races of the EXTREME MAN series are all held over the half distance (1.9km swimming, 90km cycling, 21.1km running). The cardinal point of the German location in Düren is the Düren Badesee (lake) as the location for swimming and running as well as the start and finish area and the Triathlon Fair. The cycling course leads the triathletes through the northern Eifel region, very popular among cyclists.
Salou on the Costa Dorada will host the opening event of the altogether five races of the 2014 EXTREME MAN series on 11 May, followed by Düren (1 June), Getxo in the Basque country (6 July), and Narbonne on the French Mediterranean coast (7 September). The final event will once again take place in the Balearic island of Menorca on 21 September.
