The Powerman Duathlon World Series is without doubt the leading global brand in the sport of duathlon, providing the most competitive and challenging races on the circuit. Powerman races are respected by athletes all over the globe.
Powerman has a heritage dating back 20 years, with Zofingen, Switzerland hosting one of the most famous and toughest events in the multisport world, regularly attracting the top names from duathlon and triathlon competition.
TRI247.com (www.tri247.com) will be working with the International Powerman Association (www.powerman.org) to develop a new website for the organisation, as well as developing a comprehensive database of historic Powerman results.
TRI247.com is the most comprehensive, professional and independent resource for triathlon and duathlon in the UK – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, increasingly developing a reputation for it’s coverage, analysis and reporting of world multisport events, as well as it’s UK base.
Editor of TRI247.com, John Levison, comments “we feel that the sport of duathlon has enormous potential, and the opportunity to work with the leading brand in the sport to help develop that is an extremely exciting one. Duathletes continually tell us how challenging and well run the Powerman Series of races around the world is, and we are keen to help spread that message to a wider audience, to develop both Powerman events, and the sport of duathlon generally.”
Deputy Editor of TRI247 and former World number one duathlete, Annie Emmerson, comments “I raced several Powerman races in my time as a full-time athlete and I can honestly say they were some of the best organised duathlon races I ever did. The organisers take care of the athletes to ensure that they have the best race possible – that includes the elite and age-group athletes. The courses are always challenging and all non-drafting races, which mean you’re guaranteed a tough, honest race. I support the Powerman organisation 100% and believe that it holds the key to the future of duathlon.”
President of the International Powerman Association, John Raadschelders said “Tri247 caught my eye from the first moment. Especially the way they communicate and create the emotion of our sport appealed to me. Powerman has been looking for years to find the right partner. When I heard that Annie Emerson was the girl behind Tri247, my decision was quickly made, because we both have the same goal: to be the best in the field.”
