Hutchinson Announces Major 2021 Triathlete Signings

Hutchinson Cycling Dpt., pioneer of tubeless bicycle tyre technology, has announced its 2021 roster of professional triathletes, with multiple major new signings.

Recognising the rapidly increasing importance that triathlon plays in the global sports sphere, Hutchinson has stepped up its investment by working with some of the best of most promising triathletes in the world. 

Rather than simply sponsoring recognised athletes as a marketing exercise, Hutchinson works closely with every partnered athlete, utilising their vast and varied experience of racing and training at the highest levels and their highly respected feedback to help develop the best products possible for every Hutchinson rider, pro and amateur alike.

Headlining the French brand’s new triathlete lineup is one of the most decorated competitors of all time, Spanish superstar Mario Mola. Three-time ITU World Champion, ranked number 1 Olympic qualifier, Red Bull athlete and with a staggering total of 23 professional wins, Mola is a true champion of the sport and now a significant part of the Hutchinson family of athletes.

Hotly anticipated 23 year old British triathlete Alex Yee also joins the crew of Hutchinson supported athletes for the 2021 season. Already with multiple European and international medals to his name, Yee is aiming for Tokyo 2020 qualification riding Hutchinson’s tyres.

BMC Pro Triathlon Team, one of the most established international pro outfits, boast an incredibly strong array of talent for 2021, with the likes of 2018 World ITU Long Distance Champion Pablo Dapena Gonzalez (ESP), Ironman Florida 2020 winners Chris Leiferman (USA) and Katrina Matthews (GBR), Patrik Nilsson (SWE) North American IM Champion 2019, 2020 Asian Pacific Ironman Champion Max Neumann (AUS), Multiple 70.3 winner Chelsea Reilly Sodaro (USA) and IM Hamburg 2019 winner Kristian Høgenhaug (DEN).

Competing in long-distance events (such as Ironman) worldwide throughout the season, BMC Pro Triathlon Team will be providing vital feedback to Hutchinson’s R&D division, Racing Lab, testing and assisting with the perfecting of new tyre models, pushing them to the limits in race scenarios.

Keen to help nurture homegrown talent, French brand Hutchinson has renewed its partnership with Poissy Triathlon Club, having supported the organisation for the past few seasons. Poissy Triathlon boasts a powerful roster including winners of the Tokyo Test Event Mixed Relay Cassandre Beaugrand, Léonie Periault and WTS Bermuda 2019 winner Dorian Coninx.

Seasoned Spanish pro, Fernando Alarza will also be riding on Hutchinson tyres this year, representing the brand at World Triathlon races and providing valuable and experienced feedback on new and existing tyres and compounds.
