2021 Europe Triathlon Junior Cup Wels

27 Jun, 2021 • Wels, Austria • Event Website
Start Lists

This year, for the first time, Wels joins the ranks of top-class international junior competitions after Vienna and Kitzbühel with a Junior European Cup. We are very proud that Europe‘s triathlon elite is coming to our city. The organisation at this special time will certainly be a challenge, but we are confident and can draw on many years of experience in hosting major sporting events.

It is the best of the best who will compete in this event. They say triathlon is a competition against yourself and against the clock. You can‘t just do it on the side like any recreational sport, it‘s a lifestyle. There is a saying that triathletes are not born, but made. This sport demands a lot of discipline, mental strength and a positive attitude from the athletes.

The race starts on the 300m² SilberHolz Floating dock in the Traun, then it‘s on to the bike course in the style of a cycling criterium, followed by a run through the city centre of Wels. In addition to the jnuior races, there will also be an „Open Race“ of the „starlim City Triathlon Austria Wels“ for all beginners and hobby triathletes.

Sport with its social component is an essential building block of our society. We are proud to have been awarded the Junior European Cup by the European Triathlon Federation. This shows once again that Wels not only offers the right setting for mass sports, but also for top-class sports. Numerous sporting events have already taken place in Wels, from the Wels Half Marathon to the Cycling Tour of Austria and the inner-city cycling criterium to the Wels Teamplayer Cross Run or the Business Run. Even the tennis Davis Cup has already been held in Wels. Just as top athletes become ambassadors for their clubs, sporting events are figureheads for the host city. With the Junior European Cup, we have once again gained a new figurehead for our city. Congratulations!

I would like to thank all the organisers, sponsors, clubs and volunteers who helped with their commitment to make this event unforgettable and to continue Wels‘ good reputation as a sports city. I keep my fingers crossed for all athletes on their way into the future of top-class sport and wish them every success. Toi, toi, toi!
