About his strategy for tomorrow: "I hope to come out of the water together with the leading group. On the bike I want to save as much energy as possible.

Peter "Paco" Wrolich

FacebookDiggTwitter

Austrians Cycling Pro's Paco Wrolich and Rene Haselbacher are exercising since three days in and around the principality of Monaco. They drove by to have a look at the TriStar111 preparations. Wrolich about the bike course: "I just took a ride on the course and it's really hard. The sleazy athletes will take advantage of it."

Pro's Bike Check-In

FacebookDiggTwitter

Phil Mosley #12 (AUS): His aim is to come in the Top10. But he is a little bit afraid of the bike course:"I took a look at the cycling course and despite cycling is my strongest discipline I am afraid if I don't have the right bike with me. There are very steep climbs and ambitious downhill parts." The most important thing for him is to have a great time: "I'm looking forward to have a nice evening with friends after the race. Monaco is a great place for a competition like this."

Good Luck, Phil!

David Somerville #496

FacebookDiggTwitter

David Sommerville from New Zealand made a lot of races over the last years: "It's early season for me, so I just want to finish, that's all. David likes the TriStar format: "It's a good distance, especially for cycling specialists. Next year I want to do the TriStar222 Sardinia."

Katharina Schroll #221

FacebookDiggTwitter

Katharina Schroll from Austria is actually spending her holidays with her husband at the Cote d'Azur. Because she needs some excitement as well, she decided to do the TriStar111 Monaco. It's not her first Triathlon but her longest one: "I already completed a lot of short distance Triathlons and I'm a little bit afraid of the very demandig and mountainous cycling course." Don't worry Katharina, you will do it!

Good Luck!

Mauro Milani #536

FacebookDiggTwitter

Triathlon sport belongs to his life. Mauro Milani from Italy participated in every existing Triathlon format. The TriStar111 is his first one. "I chose this race because of the beauty of Monaco. My aim: I want to enjoy the competition, have fun and do it under 5 hours." Mauro has good chances to do this. He has got his whole family with him. "They will push me forward and support me like they always do."

Good Luck, Mauro!

"Goal of the year"

FacebookDiggTwitter

The Media Team of the TriStar111 Monaco took a look at the Bike Check-In and is proud to present a few of our amateur competitors. For Philipp Franks this competition is the goal of the year.

Jenson Button and Alex Wurz are starting together with Nico Rosberg. Today they just picked up their stuff for tomorrow's competition at the EXPO in Larvotto. Alex Wurz, former LeMans-Champion is going for the cycling part and is glad to be at the start of TriStar111 Monaco: "I'm a resident of Monaco and I know every potthole of the bike course." About his expectations he means: "I didn't have time to exercise that much, but I think I have got quite good basics. I'm doing this just for fun."

Due to his weight (about 80kg) the mountainous bike course is not ideal for him. But he hopes that the cycling won't take him longer than 3:25 hours. "First I wanted to do the whole race on my own. But in the last weeks I spoke to Jenson Button and Nico Rosberg and they wanted to do the TriStar111 Monaco as well. So we decided to start in a relay team. All in all I hope that we can finish the race in about 4:30 hours."

Celebrities

FacebookDiggTwitter

Due to the participating celebrities like Paul Belmondo, Jenson Button, Nico Rosberg, Thierry Bourguignon and others the race will even be more interesting.

Paul Belmondo, the french race driver, actor and son of Jean Paul Belmondo knows the course but he doesn’t see this fact as an advantage: “When I was driving I was more concentrated on the curves. In the last months I worked very hard on my cycling and swimming skills but not so hard for the run. Let’s see what the Raceday brings.”

Chris McCormack

FacebookDiggTwitter

"It's gonna be a stunning race"

FacebookDiggTwitter

Also course director Laurent Lerousseau is looking forward to a stunning race: “There are two main propositions we have. The first one is to create dreams and the second is to have a nice race. It’s great that we have got the authorisation to run on the Formula One course. It makes the competition even more interesting. Further it’s going to be a sunny day tomorrow, so be prepared for a exciting and wonderful race tomorrow.”

Female Competition

FacebookDiggTwitter

Christel Robin likes the course: “Especially the bike course is very beautiful but also difficult and mountainous. I prepared myself in the mountains.”

Olivier Marceau

FacebookDiggTwitter

Olivier Marceau (SUI), who participated three times in the Olympic Games is one of the favourites as well. “The new TriStar format is more focused on the bike race. There are hardly any similarites to the olympic distances. Just the way to manage the effort is quite similar. The bike course is very interesting to discover. You have to keep some energy for the run.”

MACCA about the course and his expectations

FacebookDiggTwitter

Just one day to go! The favourites of the TriStar111 Monaco gathered at todays press conference at 10 o’clock and shared their feelings and thoughts.

Currently our construction team is unpacking the material that is inside this truck that travels around Europe: transition racks for the bags, the racks where you will park your bikes and all the branding that you will see built up over the next couple of days. Have fun exploring the Principality and seeing the preparations for TriStar111 Monaco unfold. And Yes, you can register for the race tomorrow starting at 9:00. See you at the Star&Co Village!

Athlete Guide

At TriStar111 Monaco, athletes have already received an on-line briefing about two weeks ahead of the race. So once in Monaco, they are completely relaxed and can enjoy the sun, sea, and the Principality. This race guide contains some useful information for competitors - each participant gets a hard-copy in their registration pack. And you, too, can have a look!

PS: The race guide is printed with a 100% cradle-to-cradle certified printer in Austria. Only FSC certified paper and natural inks are used for its production.

Ok, it's race week. But hey, we should have some FUN, too, right?

Happy Birthday Laurent Urban

who works in Marketing, Sales & PR for Star Production SARL.

Just in case you wonder why we're not sending birthday wishes toparticipants who celebrate today: no birthdays amongst our cometitors today! ;)

Yes, you can!

Take on a new perspective!

FacebookDiggTwitter

Sitting in a plane changes perspectives. That's what Star Event's goal was when it was invented by Georg Hochegger (I am not talking about the "sitting in the plane.." part here!): change the way people look at sports events and how they are organized!

The next weekend will see the first TriStar111 Monaco. 650 individual athletes and 40 relay teams (composed of 2 or 3 members!) will participate in the Formula 1 of Triathlons over 1km swimming, 100km cycling and 10km of running along the original F1 track.

TriStar111 Monaco is the third TriStar in 2010. Thank you to everyone who shares our dream of changing perspective, and everyone who supports us in setting up sports events that put the athlete back in the center of attention, are focused on fun, social responsibility and environmental protection.

Yes, you can!

PS: The photos was taken today when flying in to Nice Côte d'Azur before heading to our headquarters in Monaco. Have a close look at the Principality - isn't this the most stunning setting for a Triathlon?

Every wondered who makes it possible that after the race you can re-live the race emotionally? Many photographers capture our races. Tine Steinthaler is one of them, and he covers each TriStar race in Europe. He provided us with great photos of Rheinhessen and TriStar111 Germany in June, and he transported the lush greens of Otepää's TriStar111 Estonia in August. Tine will also be in Monaco to capture the Formula 1 of Triathlons.

One of Tine's triathlon shots was chosen amongst 280.000 entries to the Canon Professional Network's Editor's Choice Awards. Have a look at the Award Website - Tine's featured image starts at 6min11.

And make sure you smile into his lens at TriStar111 Monaco next weekend!

Yes, you can! ;)
