The beautiful beach, sea and dunes surrounding Kijkduin (The Hague) are the main elements of the tough course of the Beach Challenge Cross triathlon. This race is always unpredictable and challenging due to the ever-changing natural elements of wind, sand and sea..
The NH Atlantic hotel, which is ideally located next to the finish, has a special offer for competitors during the week of the event. More information on the hotel here.

Team USA Bike Checklist
Congratulations on making Team USA. Below are a few things that will help the team mechanics better serve you.
Make sure your bike is in working order - Taking your bike to your local bike shop for a tune-up is recommended. Try to give your shop two weeks before your trip in the event of major repairs that you may not be aware of. Packing your bike - If you are uncomfortable packing your bike, please allow your bike shop to assist you. If you pack your bike, please make sure that your pedals, seat/seat post, wheels, helmet, and any other race day equipment make it in the box. Please secure smaller items such as pedals and stems in a bag or small box so they are not lost in transport. Unpacking your bike - We do encourage you to assemble your bike as much as you can. If you are not comfortable with this task, then we are glad to assist you. It is easier for us to assemble your bike correctly than it is to repair a badly stripped out bolt or replace a broken part.
Mechanics are present at races on a volunteer basis. We will try to be prepared for any bike repair that we encounter. If you have a bike with special needs, such as a wheel-set that requires a different spoke tool, or a bike that has odd sized bolts, please bring proper tools just in case we do not have them. With sometimes hundreds of bikes to work on, it is hard to have every tool and bolt that we may need to get you on the road safely. If we do encounter bikes that need major repairs we will do our best to get these bikes on the road for the event. Thanks for helping us help you.
