Timo Bracht Wins IM Lanzarote
CBD Cycles - 22/05/2011
Giant-sponsored triathlete Timo Bracht won Ironman Lanzarote Canarias Saturday, setting a new course record at the triathlon event in Spain. Lanzarote is a volcanic island located off the North Western coast of Africa. It is considered by many to be equally as tough as the Hawaii Ironman and there are many similarities between the two island courses.

After coming out of the water 1:20 behind fellow German Konstantin Bachor, Bracht posted a solid bike time on his Giant Trinity Advanced SL. He closed the gap to Bachor on the run, and went on to win by a healthy margin of more than 14 minutes. Bracht’s time of 8:30:34 shattered the old course record by more than 5 minutes.

The win was Bracht’s second straight in Ironman competition. He also won Ironman Arizona last fall.

Come and see us at CBD Cycles for the biggest range Giant Trinity SL Advanced bikes. The Trinity Advanced SL's are available in store from $3999 and when properly fitted by us you too win soon be posting times like Timo.......and who knows you may even win on the other Volcanic Island in the Pacific.

Well done Timo.
