Patrick Lange had his best day ever last year when he took the bronze at Ironman Hawaii, running a blistering 2:39:45 marathon, breaking the course record for the run. This year he's back to show what he's got. His Canyon Speedmax is custom, like Jan Frodeno's, with the ultra-narrow front end. However, Lange's setup also has some tilt to the extensions, something neither Frodeno nor any other stock Canyon owner can boast. Lange looks great on the bike, and we will be excited to see how he does on Saturday.
