I'm proud to collaborate with brands which share my passion for adventure, challenges and top-level performance. I invest 100% in my preparation, and I love collaborating with companies who share my dedication.
Cervélo bikes need no introduction in the world of triathlon; they consistently produce the fastest and most durable bikes in the industry. It’s been an absolute joy to partner with them from 2022, and race on the P5 for the Xtri season, while using the light allrounder Caledonia for training and some challenging warmup races. Cervélo bikes are world.leading in terms of performance, but essentially for me, their construction also allows me to easily adapt the position and set-up of the bike and carry out mechanical maintenance, which can be deciding factors in extreme triathlon.
World class wetsuits and swimskins for all conditions. Deboer creates game-changing wetsuits for the fastest performances, but is also unique in adapting this technology to cold water swimming - perfect for the Xtri Would Tour.
Located just a few kilometres from my home, BASWA Acoustic joined me as a main partner in 2022. The company creates acoustic interior architecture (including the famous St Moritz swimming pool, which a few triathletes may recognize!) My partnership with BASWA gives me direct support for racing, training camps, and the travel and logistics involved. However, it’s also a partnership between individuals who are passionate about sport, getting the most out of yourself, and enjoying the whole process. Partnerships with business not directly related to triathlon have a very special value for me; you’ve found people who are essentially saying, even if you don’t represent our target market, we want to support you, and believe we can benefit from each other – and it’s a huge privilege to find this kind of support.
Zalaris are the title sponsor of Norseman, one of the most important races on my calendar, which made them a natural partnership choice for me. This partnership goes far beyond a simple business relationship, however; Zalaris CEO Hans-Petter Mellerud in his team are passionate athletes and supporters of pushing your limits, and their drive to use their platform to fund projects for people affected by cancer are truly inspiring. As an organisition, Zalaris places a clear focus on healthy and happy employees, and it’s an honour to have a role in sharing my story with this company and having their support on race day.
