Uplace-BMC confirms 2015 team
Pro squad remains virtually unchanged, with Axel Zeebroek (BEL) the only omission
After 21 victories and 46 podiums in 2014, pro triathlon team Uplace-BMC has revealed its nine-strong athlete line-up for this year, which remains virtually unchanged and still includes the two British athletes Corinne Abraham and Will Clarke.
The roster for 2015 includes seven different nationalities and runs as follows: Corinne Abraham (GBR), Bart Aernouts (BEL), Liz Blatchford (AUS), Dirk Bockel (LUX), Will Clarke (GBR), Helle Fredriksen (DEN), Sofie Goos (BEL), Romain Guillaume (FRA) and Ronnie Schildknecht (SUI).
Uplace-BMC have put together a short video to introduce the 2015 squad:
Having racked up some seriously impressive results last year including golds at the Ironman European Champs (Abraham), Challenge Bahrain (Frederiksen) and Ironman 70.3 UK (Clarke), it’s unsurprising that the only change is the omission of Belgian athlete Axel Zeelbroek, who retired from pro triathlon last year.
The team’s stated aim for 2015 is to be competitive in triathlon’s biggest races worldwide, with a particular focus on the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Austria and the Challenge Family Triple Crown Series.
