Cobb saddles and 2XU bike pants, truly the best combination ever!

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Now after I have been riding this combination for nearly one year and much more than 15000km I´m absolutely sure, that I´ve never had a better combination of bike pants and saddle. I can say that because I had some serious seat issues during the last 3years. Tried uncountable different saddles and different bike pants but it got worse and worse. The only advantage of that seat issues were that my surgeon and me became good friends and I´m an expert concerning the different kind of saddles and bike pants now…

I´m not quite sure, but I think I´ve seen the operating table at least 5 times beginning in summer 2009, when I firstly had that issues, to the end of 2010. It destroyed a lot of races for me and I am really happy that it´s over now!

Thank you so much! John Cobb for building these great saddles and 2XU for that extraordinary bike pants!

Happy new Year!

Happy new year!

I hope that everyone had a great start into the new year 2012 which will be another challenging and for sure successful season.

Thanks a lot to the team sponsors who made this fantastic season possible. My 7th place at Lanzarote, 3rd place at aronamen, second victory at Ostseeman, 3rd place in cologne and last but not least the Ironman Arizona were I learned a lot more than in every other race. Not everything went perfect last year and therefore I´m more than motivated to improve that in the coming season!
