Brownlees get new patriotic paint job from Boardman Bikes – in pics
Hand-painted Union Jacks intended to swell support for British brothers at WTS London this weekend
With WTS London just days away, Boardman Bikes have given their star triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee special patriotic paint jobs to help ensure the home crowd gets behind them in Hyde Park.
The standard black and yellow Boardman Elite Air 9.8 bikes that they usually ride have been stripped, sanded back and meticulously hand painted in blue and red with a Union Jack emblazoned on the head tube to match the side panels of their GB sprint suits.
Boardman Bikes hope that with these bikes, a home advantage and strong support from the UK spectators, the Brownlees will both be able to close the points advantage that Javier Gomez and Mario Mola currently have, and put them in a strong position going into the WTS Hamburg round in July.
