Bahrain Victorious 13 is proud to become the inaugural principal partner of supertri team Crown Racing, continuing its commitment to the growth of triathlon in the Middle East.

Crown Racing is the third team confirmed to compete in supertri’s 2024 League season, with Bahrain Victorious 13 reaffirming its involvement after having been a sponsor for the last three years. In previous years, the Bahrain Victorious 13-sponsored team has won the overall supertri team championship as well as fielded event winners and the individual women’s champion.

supertri CEO and co-founder Michael D’hulst says, “Bahrain Victorious has been part of supertri team development since we began the concept. The launch of Crown Racing, a team with a focus in the region and with Bahrain continuing its commitment as title sponsor, will help us to support and deliver the region’s ambitious aims for the sport.”

Bahrain Victorious 13 CEO and supertri co-founder and board member Chris McCormack adds, “Our dedication to supporting the supertri series and our athletes remains unwavering, as it has been since its inception. I’m super excited about the team this year. We’ll launch a full assault on getting that title back from round one.”

Each of the four supertri teams will feature four men and four women, including an under-23 athlete in line with supertri’s commitment to developing the future of triathlon. The teams will compete for a prize pot of $1.1m, which sits outside of individual prize money.

  •     August 18: supertri Boston
  •     August 25: supertri Chicago
  •     September 8: supertri London
  •     October 6: supertri Toulouse
