A very busy weekend for PROJECT worldwide!
This last weekend saw the Triathlon World Cup take place in New Plymouth, New Zealand. Triathlon Canada had Andrew Yorke and Michael Lori finish 4th and 9th respectively, a great effort all round!

PROJECT UK was featured at AFL Europe’s Champions League in Amsterdam. With the partnership between AFL Europe and PROJECT recently announced, it was great to see PROJECT casual gear beginning to appear, with jerseys for the players following soon!
Closer to home, the Bike Bug Next-Gen girls were racing in the Tour of Mansfield. Over two days of racing through the Victorian high country, the girls had perfect conditions. Margeaux Thompson finished near the top placing 11th overall with the others not far behind. A great result for the team!
Ironman Melbourne was a massive event on Sunday. PROJECT was excited to have new ambassador Luke Bell racing, complete with his new PROJECT Supersuit! A tough race ensued with Luke coming out of the swim to enter the lead group on the bike. A battle on the bike and through the run, Luke’s effort was sensational and finished with an overall position of 14th. Towards the end of the race, strategy changed with focus on technique and finishing well, not burning out for the upcoming Port Macquarie Ironman in May. You can view Luke’s pre-race interview here.
