Having a career in professional cycling not only takes incredible talent and a relentless commitment; it also takes the help and support of many others to get you over the finish line. Amber Pierce, one of cycling's fiercest competitors, recognizes the help and support she received in her career and recently launched #BeAGoodWheel.
“I have followed a lot of wheels over my career and was lucky to learn from the best. I learned how to win, yes, but above all, I learned the importance and art of being a Good Wheel. I am grateful to all of the Good Wheels in my life”.
Amber asks us all to reflect on the the Good Wheels in our lives and in the spirit of giving thanks, let’s show our gratitude for all the Good Wheels out there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Post a thank-you to someone who has been a Good Wheel for you (be sure it’s public)
* Tag them & use the hashtag #BeAGoodWheel
* Every week until the new year, a selected post will win prizes—for both you and the Good Wheel you tagged!
You can also thank a Good Wheel with an exclusive kit from Athlos. 15% of the proceeds going to support the Network for Advancing Athletes.
The elements of the Big Island gave way to a beautiful day, as athletes took to the course of the 2018 Ironman World Champions in Kona. Despite Kilauea Volcano actively spewing lava since early May, Athlos ambassadors Jenny Boulmeti and Lamprini Liouta, fearlessly attacked the course. This race, known as the "world's most difficult one-day sporting event” consists of a 2.4-mile ocean swim, 112-mile bike, followed by 26.2-mile run. Athletes are put to the ultimate test through every stage, from jelly stings to heat and high winds.
Jenny and Lamprini had incredible races, each achieving personal milestones and results. The athletes used a combination of Athlos Chronos triathlon products to battle the elements and conditions. Jenny used the Chronos Short Sleeve Skinsuit and Lamprini used a combination of the Chronos tri top and Chrono tri short.
