At the end of the annual meeting of the directors of all races from the Challenge Family family, a gala dinner was held, during which the Challenge Family Race Awards for the events in 2022 were presented.
The Gdańsk event was nominated in 5 out of 10 categories, an additional 11th category is the Race of The Year award, in which all events are nominated. Nominations for individual categories were awarded on the basis of questionnaires filled out by competitors immediately after the competition, then the votes of competitors, fans and supporters from around the world decided about the awards.
– The Challenge Family Awards really underscore our commitment to #AllAboutTheAthlete, said Jort Vlam, CEO of Challenge Family. The prizes are not awarded by us, but by the players. It is their voice that counts and their voice is decisive. Times are still tough in the event industry and while only a few races could win prizes today, I would like to thank all of our organizers for their dedication, who without exception are giving their best and fully committed to giving every rider the event of a lifetime.
Let us remind you that for the debut edition of the LOTTO CHALLENGEGDANSK event in 2021, our event received the most prestigious distinction, i.e. the Race of The Year 2021 award. finish line, best finisher zone and greenest race). Finally, our representatives return from Las Palmas with the award for the best finisher zone and the second place in the Race of The Year 2022 category.
– The finisher zone, starting from the first edition of our event, has been our “apple in the eye”. In 2022, we added live cooking, thanks to which the players could eat a fresh meal. We kept everything that was in our zone the year before – i.e. pasta, pizza, waffles, ice cream, beer and of course fruit, isotonic drink, water, Coca-Cola, Red Bull. It is worth mentioning that in our finisher zone there are no coupons or vouchers, the only limit is the capacity of the stomachs. I would like to thank our titular partner Totalizator Sportowy, the owner of the LOTTO brand, as well as the city of Gdańsk and the Gdańsk Sports Center for the opportunity to organize this event – says Adam Greczyło, competition director.
