For the 2017 season, professional triathlon athlete, Patrick Lange will join the Swiss Side team. Lange will join fellow “ERDINGER Alkoholfrei” team colleagues Laura Philipp, Julia Gajer as well as Andreas and Michael Raelert who are all now on the Swiss Side team. Swiss Side aerodynamics experts will work with Lange’s entire bike-rider system and optimize it to ensure he has faster bike splits in the future.
It was a well-thought-out decision from Patrick Lange to work with the number one brand in aerodynamics. “I want to ride the fastest possible products,” says Lange, “Swiss Side lives that passion. Wheels developed by Formula 1 racing engineers are the top-notch in the aero segment. Swiss Side products complement my setup and I’m confident I’ll be riding the best wheels out there.“
“We are proud to supply Patrick with our unbeatable HADRON Ultimate aero wheels and to optimize his aerodynamics on the bike,” says Jean-Paul Ballard, CEO and Technical Director from Swiss Side. “This is a huge opportunity for us to show how much of an impact we can make through the advantages of an aerodynamic optimization.”
Lange has drawn attention through his incredible running ability such as his performance at the 2016 Ironman World Championships when he beat Mark Allen’s 27 year old marathon course record. The collaboration with Swiss Side will give Lange another advantage toward achieving his ultimate goal of winning the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
Welcome to the team Patrick!
