With many of the competitors gearing up for the Ironman World Championship in St. George in May, last weekend’s Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote race featured a number of big names who were using the race as a tune up for the upcoming race in Utah.

Featuring a tough course similar to what they’ll see in May, the race served as a great opportunity to test out their rides. We took a few minutes to grab some photos of some of the speedier setups we saw:

Multiple Ironman champ Florian Angert had his Cube C:68 TT tuned for speed.
Scotland’s David McNamee adds aero arm rests to his PX-Series set up.
As much as this bike might fit in the pro rack, it belongs to age-group competitor John Milliard from France.
The Specialized Shiv certainly looks fast! This one belongs to the Netherlands’ Lars van der Knaap.
Pierre Le Corre might be better known for his draft-legal racing, but his aero cockpit looks pretty good as he geared up for a 70.3 race.
Belgium’s Christophe de Keyser has lots of front-mounted hydration set up in his cockpit.
Bart Aernouts is set to go on his Trek Speed Concept with DT Swiss wheels.
Defending Ironman World Champion keeps things simple and fast with her Cervelo P5.
Great Britain’s Simone Mitchell took on Lanzarote’s famous winds with a disc wheel …
And a customized aero cockpit.
Great Britain’s Lydia Dant is also on a Cervelo P5 … with very colourful wheels!
World Triathlon draft-legal specialist and mixed relay gold medalist Jess Learmonth took on the challenging Lanzarote course on a road bike.
Learmonth added Trek’s Mono Ergo Extension to her road bars.
McNamee’s PX Series is ready to go.
