Thanks for the love, Sheri Jones:

Getting some Diaa Nour love! Now, you know I love my #Ventum but the #bike is a small part of why i love this #bikecompany. Diaa, Jimmy and Rachel are the most caring and customer service oriented company out there. If you have an issue w your Ventum, they solve it! They always make sure your bike is ready to #train and #race. My favorite quote from Diaa speaks volumes of why my Ventum truly is a #superbike: "If it has a purpose, it’s on the bike. If it doesn’t, it’s simply not on there. We’re not putting bullshit on our bike. This is not an entry-level bike. It’s a serious #machine for people who care about seconds.” EXACTLY!!😎 #VentumOne #downtubesarefordinos #fastbikes #youneedonetooipromise #ventumgirl #pullthetrigger #buyaVentum #rideVentum #rideabike #rideoutside #triathletesuperbike #thisbikeisfast #TeamZoot #TeamUSA🇺🇸 ##zootgirlalldaylong #ZootSports #cyclingandhappiness #cycling

At IRONMAN Coeur d’Alene, 3 Kona Qualification slots went to Ventum riders! Triathlete Chad Albright in 35th — and triathlete Cristina Mata just ahead of him — qualified. Ted Cochrane also raced on his Ventum and qualified by finishing in 6th place!

 

At IRONMAN 70.3 Qujing, Jenny Fletcher finished in 6th place. Congrats, Jenny!

What an amazing race @ironmantri put on here in China for the inaugural race of #qujing703 From the officiating, to the volunteers, to the spectators lining the streets🙌🏻🙌🏻 it was top notch! They built the lake for #triathlon and boy I loved it. My kinda swim. 2nd out of the water behind speedy @kelsey_withrow! The bike course was a true solid course and with the 6700ft of #altitude it was a challenge. There is nothing like running 🏃🏻‍♀️ into a stadium with 100's of cheers! 💗 Loved this race. I come away with the essential info I need to prep for my next race, & the final spot on the podium!! 6th place, some points for next year, and some $$!! It was worth the trip for sure!! Congrats to a solid & deserving win to @spiampiano, 2nd to @kelsey_withrow, 3rd to @katebevilaqua, 4th to Kerry & 5th to Myriam. You ladies pushed me all day! Excited for my training block about to happen in Sardinia @fortevillage in preparation for @ironman #ITALY🙌🏻🙌🏻 but first…. a little trip to Beijing to see #thegreatwall #livinganadventureeveryday #worldtravel #bucketlist
