Santiago Ospina Takes Third in Age Group at FGCU Sprint Triathlon

Cycle Shack is proud to be a part of the Sprint Triathlon event at Florida Gulf Coast University today. This annual event consists of a sprint and duathlon, with entrants from all over the state. It is competitive amateur event held on the college campus every April.

Santiago Ospina was Team Cycle Shack’s rider in the 2018 FGCU Eagle Sprint Triathlon.

We sponsored triathlete Santiago Ospina, an experienced twenty-one-year-old veteran of the triple-discipline event.  Santiago rode on a Fuji Bikes Transonic aerodynamic competition bike and custom Cycle Shack triathlon uniform suit.

Our service manager, Jake, assisted Santiago in prepping the bike for race day, including dialing in the bike’s geometry according to Santiago’s body measurements, tuning up the Di2 electronic gear-shifting, and readying the hydraulic brake mechanisms.

The result was a remarkable 54:40 race time, good for twelfth overall and third in Santiago’s age group. ┬áSantiago posted an average bicycle speed of 22.8 and added an admirable time of 20:09 for the 5k running segment.

The Transonic, a model 2.1, was run with 100% stock components.
