The Cervélo P5X of Great Britain’s Susie Cheetham

Ready to race at IRONMAN South Africa on Sunday

A Cervélo sponsored rider from 2016, at Sunday’s IRONMAN South Africa Susie will be racing on their renege-topping P5X model, released to much fanfare at Kona in October.

Susie says of the bike:

“The front end fully adjustable so gives amazing flexibility to get into any position.
