Melissa Hauschildt proved unstoppable, and stormed to victory aboard this S-Works Shiv, complete with the new Fuel Cell storage compartment. Nearly the entire area inside the main triangle is filled with material! Apparently Specialized (and now Felt) don't feel that the additional side forces in high winds will prove problematic. I wonder what they will feel like in high gusty winds.
The 2013 edition of the Vegas 70.3 World Championships was both a surprise, given the uncharacteristic rain in the middle of the Las Vegas desert, and not a surprise, given the repeat win for the men by Sebastian Kienle and the dominant performance for the women by Melissa Hauschildt. Enjoy the gallery of riders with their steeds during the very wet bike course, not nearly as hot or dry as expected.
It was a long, hot day in the Nevada desert, full of exciting racing and an upset of the established order. New winners were crowned in Sebastian Kienle and Leanda Cave. Check out our supersized gallery.
