Pink Elites rule IM New Zealand

March 13, 2009
Elite Bicycle athletes Sara Nelson and Ariane Buser finished 1st and 3rd in their respective age groups at Ironman New Zealand last week, both qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

On her Elite Razor Carbon, affectionately known as Pink Panther, Sara won the 18-24 AG by staying near the front for the entire race and pulling away with a 4:16 marathon to win the group and send her to Hawaii.

Ariane, also on her pink Elite, rode her way to a 5:27 bike split, 3rd in her AG, and the top 30 women overall to secure herself a spot at the world champs in Kona.

We are very proud of you ladies, and look forward to seeing you on the beach in October!
