Australian triathlete and 2012 Kona Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs, enters sponsorship agreement with BMC Bicycles Australia for the 2017 race season.
There's nothing more exciting than matching the world's fastest athletes with the world's fastest bikes, and with Pete on board our all-new Timemachine 01 we're confident that he'll be at the pointy end of the race going into T2.Not only a proven race winner, Pete's approachable manner and wealth of experience in the sport makes him a great fit with our brand and we couldn't be happier that he's chosen to ride BMC." said David Gower, BMC Brand Manager for Australia.
On his new partnership with BMC, Pete said: "Being on-board with BMC is an incredible opportunity to work with one of the most trusted and credible bike brands, atop one of the most advanced and customisable Triathlon bikes. Not only can I get aero, but I can hold my position and maximise the benefits over the entire bike leg. I'm really looking forward to spending many, many hours on my new BMC Timemachine 01 TT bike & Teammachine 01 road bike as I build to my next major Ironman race in Hawaii on October 14, and chase a second World Championship title."BMC Bicycles are proudly distributed in Australia by Advance Traders Level 4, 19 Lang Parade Milton QLD 4064
