I ride a Dimond because… When I made the decision to race as a professional, making the investment in the best tools available for me to swim, bike and run my fastest was part of the deal. It was a nobrainer for me when I discovered that the fastest and most comfortable bike out there is made in the US. Dimond is doing great things for the sport of triathlon and I’m thrilled to be a part.
