At Kona he wore the ?roka protype ribbed design suit (basically a copy of all the other ribbed suits, like the endura ones etc.)
Is this a bad bad choice? I heard him talking about not making these types of decisions about sponsorship on the IM talk podcast, I.e. taking sponsorship for a slow product.
But, based on an eyeball numbers, he seems to have put around 10-12 mins into ambeger, llanos and a few others on the bike.
At Kona this was more like 20. Yes I know there were other tactics at play at Kona etc.
But these number differences seem inline from what Iāve seen (and tested myself) in the ribbed suits versus the castelli.
The castelli suit is fast, compared to a regular tri suit, but the ribbed style suits are a massive step up in comparison.
Could Wurf be shooting himself in the foot here?
