Jan Frodeno last raced Roth in 2016, when he not only convincingly won the race, but also set a new Iron-distance world record time of 7:35:39 which remains unbeaten.
“There’s no race like Roth anywhere else in the world, Frodeno says. “The great backdrop with hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic fans, the over 35-year history of this legendary race, all of this completely thrills me. But above all, I assume that there will once again be a very strong field at DATEV Challenge Roth. I just find it exciting to measure myself against the best in the world. I need the challenge.”
