The 2018 Timex Multisport Team
Athletes enjoy some team bonding with a game of Team trivia.
Time to ride.
Tucson local and pro triathlete, Lisa Roberts, led most of the group rides including multiple ascents of the iconic Mt. Lemmon.
Timex pros will be riding a mix of DURA-ACE R9100 C40 and C60 wheels with Vittoria Corsa tubulars.
The 2018 kits are a massive departure from past seasons. Simple and clean. The Trek Speed Concepts match the blue and white color scheme.
Mount Lemmon never disappoints. Less than half way up, the clouds rolled in and the temperature dropped. Visibility was limited to 30-40 feet.
Triathletes don’t always ride tri bikes. Roger Thompson sporting the Trek Madone with DURA-ACE R9150 Di2. Roger is also wearing the S-PHYRE RC9 footwear, a shoe that's gaining popularity among triathletes.
The ride was epic and the photos from photographer Kevin Batchelor captured the day perfectly.
