Ever since the concept for Vegas In 24 came alive, I was set on completing the event on a Trek Speed Concept 9.9 triathlon bike. Not just is the bike amazingly aerodynamic, but it is also the bike I have been riding for the past many years, helping me through sub-10 hour Ironman triathlons and putting me on the podium for numerous other races. I was content riding my own bike all along. What I never imagined is that a group of sponsors would come together that would allow me to ride a brand new, totally customized Speed Concept 9.9 with a design so PINK that you could not mistake it for anything but a super fast breast cancer curing machine!
And yes, this is exactly what is happening right now. Thanks to Trek Bicycles, Helen’s Cycles and Oakland Coffee, I will have the incredible privilege and honor to train for the event, and complete the event (fingers crossed), on a brand new customized Speed Concept. I will put my thinking cap on and start designing the bike in the coming weeks and hope to have a final production completion date in late January!
Watch out for a big design reveal in February!
