Top 5 of 2014 - Moment number 3 – Supporting our UK favourite Joe Skipper in IM Barcelona
December 29, 2014
We had the pleasure of supporting one of our finest UK athletes Joe Skipper in Barcelona. Joe was having a great season after winning Challenge Weymouth and was feeling fresh & strong after a quick recovery.
We proudly transported his lovely Trek Speed Concept 7.5 and gave it some well-deserved TLC. We could tell this bike had been put through its paces and Joe confirmed this with a 300W average for his Barcelona Bike split. He told Grant afterward that his bike has never felt better!!
Unfortunately Joe hit a stone taking a chunk out of his tub, which resulted in him having to borrow a spectator’s wheel leaving him 15 minutes behind the leaders. Joe still clawed it back with his amazingly impressive running style, he bounces along effortlessly and worked his way back up the ranks from 16th to finally take 6th place.

Joe had such a good support crew with girlfriend Laura, good mate Lee and most of his family out in force. They we’re all an absolute pleasure to meet and we look forward to seeing them all again for even more success next season.
