Tri bike reinforced by TeXtreme® contributes to victory in Ironman Kona 2014

For the second time in three years and third time overall, Australian Mirinda Carfae wins Kona Ironman World Championships 2014.

Mirinda ‘Rinny’ Carfae was riding a custom made bike of model Felt IA, from Felt Bicycles and reinforced by TeXtreme®, while pushing through the windy bike ride.

Next to Rinny on the podium stood Daniela Ryf, the runner-up from Switzerland, who also rode a Felt IA, proving the ability of this bike. The tri bike now holds three world championships over the last year.
