Britain’s very own multiple Ironman winner and two-time European Duathlon Champion, Lucy Gossage signs with Simplon for 2017.

Austrian premium bike brand Simplon has announced that it is to be the official bike sponsor for Lucy Gossage this coming season.

Having recently launched in the UK, Simplon has been building performance bikes in its Austrian homeland since 1961. With numerous race wins to its name across road, mountain bike and triathlon, the Austrian brand is now bringing this long, race-winning heritage to the UK.

Having already announced their sponsorship of National Mountain Bike Marathon Champion, Ben Thomas, Lucy’s signing to ride for Simplon further underlines how serious they are about the UK market with both the stunning MrT2 and the Nexio Aero road bike at Lucy’s disposal for the season.

“I am so excited to be riding the Simplon MrT2” she says

“I have been aware of Simplon for some time having competed against some of their supported riders in Europe over the years and I’ve always been an admirer of their bikes. They are stunning to look at as well as to ride. As soon as I heard they were coming to the UK, I just had to approach them”

“Having now met the team behind the bikes, I can safely say I’m in good hands and I look forward to working with them. They are such a nice, friendly and really knowledgeable bunch of people who are just as driven to win as I am. Their attention to absolute detail shows in both the immense quality of their bikes as well as in their approach to working with riders and supporting their customers” she concludes.

The bikes are now available in the UK via an expanding network of Simplon retailers and can be personally specced to your exact needs using the online configurator at www.simplon.com This is currently in German and will also be available in English imminently, but in the meantime, it is still very easy to understand and configure your dream build.

For Lucy, the season preparation is well underway and her new Simplons will see her undoubtedly setting a fast bike pace all year long.
