Alexander and Potts to Assist in R&D and with SPAERO Teams
San Diego/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – SPAERO Triathlon, a California-crafted technical triathlon brand, has announced partnerships with two icons of the sport, Craig Alexander and Andy Potts. From input in product design to leadership roles with the SPAERO ambassador and Elite Teams, their involvement with the newly-formed triathlon apparel brand will be wide-ranging.
“Craig Alexander and Andy Potts need no introduction. Having their knowledge and experience will be invaluable to our teams and product development process,” said SPAERO Triathlon CEO Ryan Cady. “With all of our production in-house, we’ll be able to quickly integrate their knowledge and expertise as we design, test, iterate and manufacture the most advanced triathlon apparel in the sport.”
Craig Alexander is a five-time world champion (3x IRONMAN, 2x IM 70.3) and 12-time Australian national champion. In addition to his roles with the SPAERO Factory and Elite Teams, SPAERO will also be the official gear partner for his Sansego triathlon team.
Andy Potts is an IM 70.3 world champion, winner of the Pan Am Games, eight IRONMANs, and represented the US at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. SPAERO will be the official gear partner of the Andy Potts Racing teams.
“Craig and Andy demand the best for the athletes in their programs,” said Karl Heigden, director of sales and business development. “The addition of the Sansego and Andy Potts Racing teams to our custom portfolio is a huge credit to the brand, and it’s all the more impressive when you consider that we’re just getting started.”
Headquartered in the birthplace of the sport, San Diego, SPAERO Triathlon will draw on its eight-year foundation of working with the most advanced fabrics to create a class-leading triathlon line with exceptional thermal regulation, superior aerodynamics and best-in-class technical designs.
In addition to CEO Ryan Cady, SPAERO is led by a talented group of individuals including Head of Global Product Marirose Charbonneau, Director of Sales and Business Development Karl Heigden, Chief Marketing Officer Allyson Davis, Chief Operating Officer Brennan Cassidy, and many others.
