Trek Factory Racing has confirmed that pro triathlete Holly Lawrence (GBR), is joining the team’s roster for 2017. Holly will focus on the 70.3 distance, defending her 70.3 World Championship title, and competing in other iconic events such as the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, which she won in 2016.
Holly came to triathlon from a talented family. As a triplet, she’s accustomed to being competitive in every aspect of life. Although her siblings rivalled her ability in the early days of their respective athletic careers, ‘Holly’s hard work, determination, and passion for sport brought her to the zenith of triathlon.’ Holly now lives and trains in Santa Monica, California.
Joining Holly on Trek Factory Racing triathlon for 2017 will be IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion Tim Reed, IRONMAN Worlds podium finisher Tim O’Donnell, American record holder Lindsey Corbin, American Lauren Goss, and Olympic ITU athlete Ben Kanute.
Holly Lawrence is excited to join this dynamic group of athletes, noting their influence in her decision to race with Trek. She said, “I am beyond excited to be joining Trek Factory Racing! I’ve been in a very fortunate position after winning the IRONMAN 70.3 world title in Australia back in September 2016, with interest from a range of great companies.
“My discussions with fellow World Champion and Trek athlete Tim Reed confirmed that Trek Factory Racing leads the way in performance, development and support for their athletes. At Trek’s headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin, I saw a company that treats its employees and sponsored athletes like family. I am excited for what lies ahead as part of the Trek team, and I’m confident that they have the passion and drive to make me the fastest I can be on a bike.”
