Challenge Kraichgau will feature a high quality field of triathletes at the European Championships on 10 June 2012. After a strong 2011, Andreas Raelert will return to Kraichgau. The defending champion will face two tough competitors on the way to the European Championship title. On the one hand there is the local hero Sebastian Kienle from Karlsruhe. Kienle is aiming to repeat his 2009 victory. On the other is Timo Bracht, one of the most successful triathletes in recent years from Germany. Bracht knows Kraichgau well from numerous training runs.
