On the heels of Craig Alexander’s record-setting Kona win last year aboard the S-Works Shiv , the whole Specialized team of triathletes continues to build momentum and take key victories in races around the world.
Last weekend, Specialized athletes took key wins at major races around the world, demonstrating how the company’s commitment to the sport is more than just about the bike – it’s about supporting athletes at the top of their game, and helping them succeed.
Specialized USA Triathlete Jesse Thomas bested a stacked Pro Men’s field at the Wildflower Triathlon. 90 seconds after Jesse crossed the line, Jordan Rapp, another Specialized athlete crossed the line in second, giving Shiv the top-two men’s spots on the podium.
As though winning wasn’t enough, Jesse took 15 minutes off his bike leg from last year aboard his new Shiv- - which was also profiled on triathlete.com.
Chris “Macca” McCormack continued his preparation for this summer’s short-course Olympic race at Wildflower’s Short Course on Sunday, obliterating a mainly Collegiate-level field. Macca was happy with the win aboard his Shiv, being one of the six athletes finishing in the top-10 on the Olympic Distance course aboard their Shivs.
Specialized’s Emma Garrard also took the win in Wildflower’s Women’s MTB triathlon.
In a hot, humid Hualco Triathlon, USA athlete Flora Duffy got her first ITU World Cup Win aboard her Amira, while Belgium’s Simon De Cuyper took the men’s race aboard his Venge.
Finally, Ben Hoffman conquered the choppy waters and gusty headwinds of the Ironman St. George to capture his second Ironman title at a race that has eluded him until 2012.
