Speedy bikes ready for a tough course: bike check in at Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote

Florian Angert and his Canyon Speedmax are ready to go.

It is renowned as a tough course, with lots of wind and almost 1,300 m of climbing. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Ironman 70.3 is considered one of the toughest 70.3 races on the circuit, but despite that, has attracted a huge pro field. We had a chance to check out some of their bikes as they set them up at today’s bike check in.

Is it a pro’s bike? Nope, it belong’s to age-grouper John Milliard from France. Gold looks good, John!
Jessica Learmonth has added Trek’s TT Mon Ergo Extension to her Trek road bike for her first long-distance race.
Pierre Le Corre, another draft-legal specialist, has a serious set of aero bars on his bike for tomorrow’s race.
Anne Haug’s Cervelo P5 is set up without a disc wheel.
David McNamee’s PX Series is all set to go.
Simone Mitchell will be heading out tomorrow with a disc wheel …
… and a cockpit with lots going on!
Lars van der Knaap will have lots of aero features helping him on the bike course tomorrow.
Heads up for Bart Aernouts tomorrow – both he and his bike look fast and ready to go.
