The Shiv Tri of Dylan McNeice

At the 2013 DATEV Challenge Roth we looked closer at a few Pro bike setups and the Specialized S-Works Shiv Tri of Kiwi Dylan McNeice is one of those. McNeice had won Challenge Wanaka at the beginning of this year and Challenge Taiwan in early May, and now ventured to Germany to race at the amazing famous Roth venue. McNeice though is no stranger to Germany, the former ITU Pro had spent quite a bit of time there while competing for Darmstadt in the Bundesliga.

If you tend to forget important stuff, it is good to have a reminder.
