Pro Triathlete Ashleigh Gentle Re-Signs with Felt Bicycles for 2021
January 28, 2021
Rancho Santa Margarita, California (January 28, 2021)— Felt Bicycles is excited to announce that pro triathlete Ashleigh Gentle has renewed her partnership with the Southern California brand for the 2021 season. The Australian star first joined forces with Felt Bicycles in 2014. Since then, Gentle has scored some incredible racing results, including several victories and top finishes in the ITU World Triathlon Series, as well as a record seven victories at the famed Noosa Triathlon.
Gentle’s biggest goal for the 2021 season will be the triathlon event at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Games were postponed in the summer of 2020 and rescheduled for 2021. Whatever challenges this season brings, however, Gentle will be ready to race and continue to be a top contender in every event she enters.
“I’m extremely excited to continue to work with Felt Bicycles into 2021,” says Gentle. “It will be our eighth year working together. I not only love the fast bikes, but the feeling of truly being part of the Felt family. We are heading into the Olympic year and the AR aero road bike will be my bike of choice. I’m looking forward to representing Felt on the race course.”
“We are thrilled to continue working with Ashleigh in 2021. She always impresses us with her drive and her ability to adapt to these challenging times. She still has her eye on the prize and will strive to bring home a medal at the Olympics this summer. But however her race schedule evolves, we know that Ashleigh will continue to be an exemplary representative for the Felt brand and for the triathlon community,” says Eric Sakalowsky, Felt’s VP of Global Marketing.
