Gear West Bike & Triathlon has been supporting The Pigman Triathlonevents since the race inception in 1992. Both the Pigman Sprint and Pigman Long Course races (half-iron) are unique in many ways but most importantly they are exceptionally well organized. The sprint is an early season favorite and the half, being later in August, is a race that gives you plenty of time to train and prepare. Whichever you choose, if not both, you will be extremely pleased as you will feel right at home with an big time event in small town Iowa.
How can Gear West Bike help? As many Minnesotans make the trek to Iowa to race these two events, it’s simple for us to lend a helping hand before each race. For anyone in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, the Dakotas and elsewhere, we have your back too. With a full line of apparel and accessories available on-line, along with race wheel and wetsuit rentals, we can get you ready for race day. Give us a call at the shop to reserve a set of race wheels or a wetsuit ahead of time as most rentals sell out in advance. Don’t worry about picking up the rentals in-store, we are happy to deliver the goods to you at the expo.
Additionally, we will be at Packet Pick-up to handle last minute race needs and at the race site on race morning providing last minute mechanical support. We will be stocked with tires, tubes, nutritional products, triathlon accessories, bottle cages, bottles and much more. As prepared as we all try and be, some things 'just happen,' which is why we will be there to make certain your race can still go on.
