Montreal, August 18, 2014 — It’s been a tremendous week-end for Argon 18 triathletes: 3 races, 3 podiums, 2 victories, and 1 Kona World Championship invitation. Leon Griffin, from Australia, won Ironman 70.3 Timberman (3:53:46), and so did New Zealand’s Terenzo Bozzone at Ironman 70.3 Lake Stevens (3:55:17). “It was Leon’s and Terenzo’s first race on their new 2015 E‑118 Next . Their impression on the bike and their results are truly satisfying to us. Things are looking very good for the World Championship in September,” said Martin Faubert, Argon 18 Research and Development Director. Also this week-end, Argonette Amber Ferreira, a Maverick Multisport athlete, took the second place at Ironman Mont-Tremblant which doubled as the North American Championship.
Amber Ferreira Comes Out Shining
Not only is Amber outstanding on the 70.3 distance, but she also showed how talented she was, taking part in her second full Ironman race ever. Only three weeks after winning Ironman Lake Placid, she was impressive finishing second at the North American Championship last Sunday (9:43:46). The 3400 points she received qualified her automatically for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, which will take place on October 11th, 2014.
On the Radar
Four Argon 18 triathletes will take part in Mont-Tremblant 70.3 World Championship on September 7th: Leon Griffin, Terenzo Bozzone, Magali Tisseyre and Jeff Symonds. As the four of them can finish first, expect fierce competition.
