I am excited to announce some new sponsors for the 2013 season:
Primal Wear, the Denver based cycling apparel company, has come on board. Now anytime you see me out on my bike I’ll be sporting the Primal Helix kit, as well as all of their high quality accessories (socks, gloves, etc). Primal Wear, founded in 1992, has emerged as the leading designer and manufacturer of premier cycling apparel for teams, clubs and events around the world. Primal’s mission is to provide the highest-quality cycling apparel available while fostering the growth of cycling through competition, community, and advocacy. This perfectly fits with my vision to compete at the highest level, as well as give back in my charitable endeavors with the burn community. www.primalwear.com
KiWAMi has come on board to sponsor my race suit. Race day you will catch me in the KiWAMi Amphibian, triathlon’s lightest and fastest race suit. The founders of KiWAMi are both champion triathletes and understand the needs of elite athletes as they compete at the top level of the sport. I am proud to be supported by this industry leading brand as I represent the USA in international competition around the world. They currently are printing my new suit for 2013…pictures will be posted soon! www.kiwamitri.com
Even though the life of a professional triathlete can be quite nomadic, I am always happy to have support from great companies in my hometown. Located in Portland, OR, the sports medicine and training center at Upper Echelon Fitness is home to a comprehensive and integrated team of professionals. They’ve spent years fine-tuning their space to create the perfect environment for the endurance athlete. They have a top of the line facility where I can train, utilize their expertise with a bike fitting studio, and take advantage of the sports science lab for lactate threshold and VO2 max testing. Upper Echelon is a great place for all endurance athletes from professionals to weekend warriors. http://upperechelonfitness.com
I am grateful to have the support of these new sponsors, and the continued support of Gelber Group and Athletes Lounge who have been with my from the beginning. Stay tuned for a couple more sponsorship announcements soon. 2013 is going to be a great year, thanks to this tremendous support.
