Now confirmed to race in the $1 million Professional Triathletes Organization (PTO) US Open, Olympic Champion Flora Duffy calls on amateur age-group athletes to join her at the inaugural event in Dallas on September 17th – 18th.
Speaking about the opportunity, Duffy said, “The PTO US Open in Dallas is the second step in a new era for triathlon. I’m thrilled to be competing in my first Open. The schedule allows age-groupers to both compete at the 100km distance, and then kick back and spectate the multi-lap-course battled by some of our sports’ best, for an incredible prize purse. The racing, and the Dallas temps, will both be feisty! You won’t want to miss it.”
The 2022 PTO US Open brings the PTO Tour to Texas for the first time, giving age-groupers the chance to be part of triathlon event history by enjoying the chance to test themselves over the new 100km or 25km distances and the opportunity to be inspired by up-close access to the pro races.
Run in partnership with USA Triathlon, participants will have the benefit of race organization from a team of local experts backed by the PTO’s dedication to exceptional event experiences, with everything from the race pack to the finish line fit for the world’s best athletes.”
