Hundreds of kids race through Kitzbuehel before the main event

Before most World Championships Series elite events there is an age group component. We captured a very special one in Austria.

Days before the elites, thousands of kids took to the streets in Kitzbühel. Children from the ages of six to sixteen competed on the elite course in front of a huge audience of cheering mums and dads.

With this level of participation, don’t be surprised to see the next triathlon prodigy come out of here in the coming years.
