2nd Place, 2014 Ironman Melbourne, VIC (30-34)
Not once on the bike did I feel uncomfortable and before I knew it was time to get off and run. During the ride I was actually thinking that I had to remember to message you. The power and comfort I felt on the bike was amazing. I got no burning sensation in my feet and when I got off to run there was no ‘easing into it’. I felt great as soon as I got off. Thanks for taking the time to do my bike fit; I can now say that it’s perfect.
