The World Class Athletes Keep On Coming

World Champ Minna Kauppi(ranked second in the world) leads a group of classy Finnish nationals that have confirmed they will be racing at the 2013 Sprint the Bay. Kauppi, along with Tuomo Mäkelä, Venla Niemi and Anni-Maija Fincke begin their quest for yellow at Hawkes Bay's Woodford House on January the 15th. The World Ranking Event kicks off the 4th edition of the tour which this year will boast the best elite field in its history. Kauppi, the world middle distance champion will be the highest ranked women in the field. The sole male of the foursome Mäkelä will also be one to watch. His 6th place finish at WOC in Switzerland this year makes him one of the favourites to take out the male category. Niemi and Maija Fincke have also made the podium at WOC in the past two years, both of which in the sprint discipline.
