XRCEL Athlete Carrie Lester Wins IronMan France 2017

Aussie Pro set the Cote d’Azur on fire with a blazing win.

Charleston, SC (July 25, 2017) – New World Consumer Products and XRCEL Athlete Fuel congratulate XRCEL brand ambassador Carrie Lester for winning IronMan France 2017. Carrie had a great race, crushing the competition thanks to her 55:32 swim, 5:19:12 bike, and a 3:06:14 run split, giving her an overall winning time of 9:27:53, and an over 10 minute gap to second place! With one of the most technical bike courses in the world, we are proud that XRCEL Athlete Fuel was able to give Carrie the immediate and extended release fuel she needed for every tough climb and descent. Carrie had a super strong and confident run using our GI friendly technology to keep her feeling fresh, fueled and way ahead of the competition! We also want to Congratulate her coach, and XRCEL ambassador, Scott DeFilippis of KIS Coaching, for his great work in preparing Carrie for the race.

Carrie joined the XRCEL team right before the 2016 IronMan World Championship race on Kona, after Scott, introduced XRCEL to her and she tested it with great success at Challenge Roth (2nd place), Embrunman (1st place), and Eagleman (1st place) last year.  On June 24, as a warm up to IM France, Carrie took 2nd place, as did Scott, in International Triathlon Deauville.

Since joining Team XRCEL, Carrie has been taking advantage of the benefits of XRCEL’s patented extended-release technology, as well as educating other athletes about how XRCEL can give them competitive advantage.

“GI distress is always a worry for endurance racing in hot conditions, as it most often ends in a sub-par performance, said Lester. “I have used XRCEL now many times racing in these conditions consuming as many as 9 over the course of a 9 hr event and always performed with no GI issues. I used the same strategy for Ironman France and ran one of my best marathons. I used to get pre-race anxiety over whether I would have issues particularly over the marathon, but XRCEL has given me the confidence that I can perform to the level I know I can”.

“We are very excited for Carrie Lester for her big win at Ironman France, said Laura DeMeo, Business Development Manager – Endurance Sports for Team XRCEL. It is a massive accomplishment and a victory that few in the world will ever achieve but most aspire.   In an interview with Carrie and her Coach Scott DeFilippis in early June, before they headed out to the Swiss Alps for training, Carrie candidly said her goal was to win Ironman France—and that she did! We had a hunch that with the combination of Carrie’s unrelenting focus, talent, hard training, and XRCEL Athlete Fuel – she would race her way to the top podium in France!
