Straight off a 2013 of high-profile wins at Challenge Taiwan and Challenge Wanaka, SpeedTeam/TwentyFour pro Dylan McNeice continues to make a name for himself. This past weekend, McNeice, back in Taiwan to defend his 2013 title, claimed the win over a fast field determined to catch the race favorite. Taiwan completed a drive for two back-to-back wins for McNeice, who also took the repeat win at Challenge Wanaka earlier this year.
The triathlon team to compete at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games was named yesterday by the New Zealand Olympic Committee at the Tri NZ High Performance Centre in Cambridge. Profile Design SpeedTeam/TwentyFour member Tom Davison was one of the 3 selections to the team.
We, as a sport, tend to have short memories. “Whatever happened to…” is a question that gets thrown around AeroGeeks HQ on a nearly daily basis. In most cases, the answer is simple: nothing happened, but other companies released their own products that weren’t necessarily better, just newer. It’s unfortunate, but it happens.
Here’s the thing; most products that end up with this fate are good enough, but not exceptional. Standing out from the crowd is hard, and keeping ahead of ones’ competitors for any significant length of time is harder still. It takes a special something to keep a product stuck in our minds, and we’re starting to think that Profile Design’s TwentyFour Series 58/78 wheels just might have it.
Dubbed the world’s toughest triathlon, Profile Design Speed Team pros Dylan McNeice and Candice Hammond commanded huge wins at Challege Wanaka. McNeice, who also won the 2013 event in his Iron distance debut, became the first male athlete to successfully defend their title in Wanaka’s 7-year history. On the women’s side, Candice Hammond, ended Gina Crawford’s win streak and surged to the win in 9:33:54, nearly 8 minutes in the lead.
