Louis Garneau is proud to announce the helmet sponsorship of pro triathlete Samantha McGlone. Samantha McGlone has been racing professionally for nine years. First as short course ITU athlete where she represented Canada at the Olympic Games in Athens 2004, then on to long course where she was the 2006 Ironman 70.3 World Champion and second at the 2007 Ironman World Championships and 2007 IM 70.3 World Championships. She won Ironman Arizona in a new course record in 2009 and was US Pro Champion for Ironman 70.3 in Texas.
"I have been racing in the LG Superleggera for the past few seasons and it is the lightest, most comfortable aero helmet I have ever tried. For daily training and extra hot races like the Hawaii Ironman I use the Diamond - it's so light and well ventilated I forget it's even there! I am excited to be partnering with LG in 2011. Their years of research and attention to detail is evident in all of their products and makes them leaders in the industry," notes McGlone.
"The helmets we have on the market right now offer the most aerodynamic, lightweight, and ventilated options available for athletes. While we are unsure exactly which style McGlone will be racing in this year, we are working to get her riding with the new Vorttice and X-Lite helmets," remarks Pierre Perron, International Marketing Director for Louis Garneau.
