NICOLE LEDER, RESPONSIBLE FOR PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES IN TRISTAR
Nicole Leder, the active German professional triathlete who also raced several TriStar events in the last years, is now responsible for professional athletes participating in the TriStar Series. Together with the TriStar team, she is working on the development of a very interesting program for all PROs. This will be focused on athletes care on site of each event and introducing special opportunities for professionals participating in TriStar races including a new PRO ranking.
"We have had several talks over the time, and lots of it about how to improve and develop the activities in TriStar for the PROs. Throughout these talks my conviction has grown that this is an exciting opportunity to develop TriStar to an attractive platform for professionals. I think the conditions are more than good. It’s not only that I personally very much like this easy dynamic and recovery format. It offers perfect conditions and opportunities for professionals in all means. We aim to provide an optimal platform and offer best services for all Pros and in every single race of the series. What I am doing now is to bring my experience and understanding of the professional community into the game so that we can implement our ideas perfectly into the events. I want to be the contact for the athletes as well as for the local organizers", says Nicole Leder.
