Challenge Family CEO Zibi Szlufcik has confirmed that five races in North America will lose their prize purses, describing it as a ‘necessary’ decision made after long consultation.
Prize money will still be available at a number of Challenge races in the US however, including Challenge Penticton, Challenge St Andrews, Challenge Knoxville, Challenge Williamsburg and Challenge Florida.
All Central and South American races will also offer a pro purse, including Challenge San Gil, Challenge Maceio, Challenge Florianopolis and the newly announced Challenge Puerto Varas.
