SOUTH AMERICA WAS ON THE MOVE THIS WEEKEND

In Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay… races were hot!

Frederik VAN LIERDE amazingly beat the heat to win IRONMAN Cozumel (Mexico). Our favourite Belgian could not have done less in his compression apparel.  The efficient and performing R2V2 calf sleeve was definitely Frederik`s ally while he biked to the finish line… and broke the race record!

After hours of strenuous swimming (he finished 2nd after 3,8 Kms), enduring cycling (180 Kms) and heated race (42,2 Kms) Van Lierde topped the Table as follows and added panache to his season finale! Americans Matt RUSSELL and Chris LEIFERMAN were respectively 2nd and 3rd.

At the same time, in Argentinian Columbia, Marco DeGASPERI lifted the 1st Place trophy after 30 Km of racing at the XTrail America
