I’m very proud to announce that I have been selected to be part of the Wattie Ink. Elite Triathlon Team for 2012. This all came about this morning as Sean Watkins and I worked through some conflicting sponsorship obligations on my end to make sure I could Rock The W properly. This was the main reason I wasn’t selected on the first go around. Turns out that a couple of team members selected were unable to wear the team kits so Wattie contacted me to see if I was still interested and it wouldn’t conflict with my Specialized deal. Wattie Ink brings a host of sponsors on board including a bike sponsor. I will continue with my Specialized deal through one of my major sponsors Kurt Orban Partners LLC but will wear the Wattie Ink kit in all races as well as continue on with KSwiss and Blueseventy as they are team sponsors as well.
I’m really looking forward to this year and I’m hoping to have my best season yet. I want to personally thank Wattie Ink for stepping up and giving us amateurs such a incredible opportunity to be part of a team like this. I’m ready to Rock The W!
