XLAB Welcomes World Champion Mirinda Carfrae to Pro Slate
April 15, 2016
XLAB is proud to officially welcome 4X World Champion Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae into the XLAB family.
“I’m excited to explore new, innovative hydration and storage solutions for my Felt IA,” expressed Carfrae. “The size of the frame has always been a challenge when loading up for Kona. I used the Torpedo Versa aerobar hydration system recently at 70.3 Monterrey and was really happy with the outcome. The team at XLAB has been super responsive with the smallest details and that speaks volumes when preparing for a huge season and Kona.”
“I’ve watched Mirinda over the years and have always paid close attention to what she was running on her bike. We are very excited to have her as part of our family of pros,” said Candice Turner, COO of XLAB. “We have seen what has worked – and what hasn’t worked for Rinny – and we are excited to set her up with world-class equipment to keep hold of her hydration and nutrition needs in even the most demanding conditions.”
Outside of her return to the Big Island, highlights of Carfrae’s season include her perennial favorite, St. Anthony’s Triathlon this month, and a return to the North American Pro Championship at Ironman 70.3 St. George. Carfrae’s mid-season focus will center on Ironman Austria, and she is excited to head back to Europe to race amidst the incredible energy of European triathlon fans. Her selection of key Ironman 70.3 events will contribute to her preparation for Austria and Kona, with August and September focused solely on her bid for the World Title.
