Indiana resident Daniel Bretscher won Ironman Wisconsin this year and finished second at the recent Ironman Chattanooga, and we looked closer at his Team Timex Trek Speed Concept when he checked it in the day before the inaugural Little Debbie Ironman Chattanooga. Bretscher is 5'10" and rides a size M Speed Concept.
Danie Bretscher's bike was shiny and clean when he checked it in. Something oddly not completely normal for some other folks as we have observed many times already.
The Trek Speed Concept of Daniel Bretscher is outfitted with a Bontrager cockpit.
Bretscher uses a Profile Design Aero HC system between his arms.

Bretscher has his repair kit stored in here, and it makes for a great bib number attachment space.
Bretscher rides a regular fi'zi:k Arione saddle, and not the tri version or the Tritone.
Simple does it sometimes and that is true for this cage under the saddle attached with zipties.
The front end of the Trek Speed Concept is very clean.
Bretscher rides a Shimano Ultegra Di2 group on his Speed Concept and the cranks show signs of heavy training and racing.
Stages power meter on 165mm cranks round out the package. But according to 51 SpeedShop's Ben Waite it was not a simple switch. A year of 170 cranks helped to transition to the 165 ones.
