Alistair and Jonny Brownlee announce partnership with Fizik

In a release, Fizik stated: “Fizik is equally enthusiastic about this relationship that renews the company’s commitment to improving the triathlete’s experience, testing and developing new products with the highest class of professional athletes such as Alistair and Jonathan. Their feedback after rigorous training and racing (much of the former being in the UK climate!) is the best possible testing ground.”
Nicolò Ildos, Marketing and Sponsoring Coordinator said: “The Fizik brand represents beauty, speed and passion. It has associations with the freedom of racing and allows enthusiast cyclists around the world to identify with the feeling of the fire of competition. Who better to be ambassadors of this freedom and feeling of competition than the Brownlee Brothers? They continue to beat the competition, worldwide, and continue to strive for ITU World Triathlon dominance. We at Fizik wish them all the best for their 2014 season.”
