Revealed: Challenge Bahrain 2014 pro field

There’s just over a week to go until the first Challenge Bahrain, and the organisers have confirmed the full pro field who’ll be racing for a slice of the whopping $500k prize fund.


Nearly 100 professional athletes will be lining up on 6 December, including both current Ironman world champions Sebastian Kienle and Mirinda Carfrae, and various Olympians and Commonwealth champs. 

There are three British men on the start line (Tim Don, Ritchie Nicholls and Fraser Cartmell) and three British women (Rachel Joyce, Jodie Swallow, and Jodie Stimpson on her middle-distance debut). The full pro start list can be found here.
