This week Imogen Simmonds continued her brilliant 2019 season with a big win at her “home” race, the Laguna Phuket Triathlon. A look at the ride that helped her to second in her Ironman debut in Frankfurt, third at the 70.3 world champs and 12th in Kona.
Simmonds, who represents Switzerland, spends her winters training in Laguna Phuket, so she is very familiar with the course. She nailed her first win thanks to a wire-to-wire performance that saw her dominate the bike, putting the race away by the time she hit T2.
Her coach, Jurgen Zach, has close ties with the folks at Canyon, so it’s hardly surprising that Simmonds would end up on a decked out Speedmax as her ride of choice. She picked up this particular bike just before her full-distance debut at the Ironman European Championship in Frankfurt.
