blueseventy is delighted to announce that we’re supporting reigning Ironman World Champion, Pete Jacobs as he prepares for a tough season of racing before targeting the defense of his title in Hawaii in October. Jacobs has a signed a multi-year deal.
Jacobs is one of the most exciting triathletes today, placing second in Kona in
2011 and improving on that performance with a convincing victory last year. At just 31 he could dominate in Kona for years to come. “I'm very happy to be back in the best fitting wetsuit I've ever worn,” Jacobs commented.
Tim Moxey, blueseventy's CEO is pleased to have Jacobs back. "Pete's one of the best swimmers in the world and chose blueseventy as his first ever suit when he was coming up through the ranks in Australia. Knowing how important the fit of the suit is for him, we knew the current helix would lure him back. It's the fastest suit on the market."
blueseventy's Director of Athlete Support, Ryan Vanderloop, has setup Pete with the new suits to help get him ready to race the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco this weekend. "We have some new products we're developing for Pete, and he's helping us with some tweaks to some of our suits for next year."
Participation in long distance triathlon is growing at a phenomenal rate around the world, and blueseventy is proud to be working with the two best long course athletes in the world with Jacobs and Leanda Cave, the defending Ironman and 70.3 World Champion.
In 2013, Jacobs will race the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, Utah 70.3, Hawaii 70.3, Cairns 70.3, Ironman Frankfurt and Philippines 70.3 with the ultimate goal of repeating his victory at the Ironman World Championships in October. We will be supporting him all the way!
