Boardman Bikes are proud to announce the signing of two truly world-class American triathletes in Meredith Kessler and ‘Doc’ Amanda Stevens. Meredith & Amanda will join Pete Jacobs, Alistair & Jonny Brownlee alongside Drew Scott and Kyle Leto on the Boardman team.

“Our bikes are the result of extensive investment into R&D. The main focus is on aerodynamic advantage – they have been designed to be raced at the highest levels of the sport. With Meredith and Amanda riding the AiR/TT (Aerodynamic Racing) range, we’ll certainly be putting the bikes through their paces on the world’s stage.” Chris Boardman, R&D Director, Boardman Bikes.

“Increasing our profile and outreach in North America is a big ambition for the brand and by signing Meredith and Amanda we have 2 incredible female athletes racing our AiR products across North America and beyond.” Fletch Newland, North American Sales Director.

“I am elated to begin a partnership with Boardman Bikes and have this incredible opportunity to ride such a well respected and results-proven triathlon bike. As my triathlon career has evolved over the years, I have thankfully become more educated with triathlon bikes having realized that they are all not made equal. The Boardman bike accolades are well documented and it is paramount to be able to partner with this high caliber of a Company – I could not be more grateful. I am looking forward to riding on their stellar bikes in training and competition while trying to take my cycling to the next level under their innovative umbrella!” Meredith Kessler, Boardman Ambassador

Amanda Stevens agrees, “They always say if you want to be the best, then surround yourself with the best. I am also so excited to align myself with the likes of the Brownlee Brothers, Pete Jacobs, and Meredith Kessler for the 2014 season.”

Meredith and Amanda will be riding frames from the world-classBoardman Elite Series Aerodynamic Racing platform – AiR/TTE and AiR/TT’s – competing in 70.3’s and Ironmans across the world and with plans to go for the win at the Ironman World Championships in Kona this year.
