Congratulations to our FELT ÖTZTAL X-BIONIC rider Paul Van Der Ploeg! He won the FELT Alpine Assault 2011, Australia’s ultimate 100km Mountain Bike race. The race starts at Falls Creek and finishes 100km later in Mt Beauty after travelling through the spectacular Alpine National Park.

Irvine, CA – Felt Bicycles is pleased to announce it will sponsor 2010 Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae in 2011 and beyond.  The 29-year-old Australian will compete on the groundbreaking Felt DA triathlon bike through 2013.

“I was very fortunate to have a number of bike sponsors pursuing me for the 2011 season,” said Carfrae. “Ultimately it came down to which company could provide me with the best combination of support and product to help me defend my World Championship. After meeting the team at Felt, studying the DA’s wind tunnel numbers, and considering their history in the sport of triathlon, the choice became obvious.”
