Florian, who got caught for doping in 2019, was a professional triathlete, and a two-time Austrian national champion. In February, he was banned for four years.

Johann, on the other hand, competed at the Summer Olympics in 1980, 1984 and 1988. He won the national road title in 1983 and was part of the Austrian team that won bronze at the time trial of the 1987 world championships.
