Results from the Inaugural Challenge Roth Bike Count! And the Most Popular Bike Is…

Saturday night after check-in closed, a team of industry experts organized by Triathlete magazine contributor Jay Prasuhn entered Challenge Roth’s T1 and conducted a late-night count of bikes, wheels and other related parts being used by pros and age groupers for the race. The count (for the approximate 3,000 individual competitors, not including relays) served as the industry’s first-ever Europe-centric bellwether of purchasing patterns among consumers in triathlon.
