Phil Graves and blueseventy open new partnership

Blueseventy is proud to announce a new partnership with Phil Graves, the youngest ever IRONMAN winner. Graves, who is known for his phenomenal cycling ability and front pack swim, will take on four IRONMAN events this season, including both British long course events.

Graves’ won IRONMAN UK back in 2009 when he was just 20. Now 28, he hopes that experience will take him back to the World Championships in Kona. His plans for the year include IRONMAN Frankfurt and Switzerland in search of Hawaii qualification. Should that not happen, he’s considering Wales, Barcelona and Arizona.

Graves said: “I’m really grateful of the support from blueseventy, which came about through a chance meeting in the swimming pool at David Lloyd in York. The helix has always been recognised as a really fast suit and has a great reputation amongst professional athletes.”

He added: “I’m looking forward to a having a good season having not really raced many triathlons for a little while. It’s good to be back, and it’s good to have support from high quality brands like blueseventy.”

Known for his cycling power and speed, Graves is also a front pack swimmer and is able to make a big impact on races. He was previously a member of the Great Britain elite team and raced at ITU events around the globe. IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire (UK) will be his first big race of the season on 18 June.
