Last weekend, Skinfit athlete Yvonne van Vlerken managed to defend her IM Cozumel title. After winning the race in 2009, she won the race in 09:07:08h to remain unbeaten at the new race in the province of Quintana Roo.

Yvonne was delighted with her victory praising both the organizers and public support she gets in Cozumel. "It is like a dream come true. I really wanted to defend my title here and I was able to control the field during the race. From a tactical perspective, it was a valuable race beceuase I am learning to adapt to moves by my fellow competitors. I am sure this will prove to be valuable for my future long distance races."

We would like to congratulate Yvonne for this amazing victory and a great 2010 season.

Skinfit Trisuit wins Kona Gear Count 2010

Every year, volunteers are busy counting bikes, shoes, apparel, wheels, etc to be able to publish the prestigious Kona Gear Count. This year, Skinfit won the one-piece suit category and placed among the top three brands in Tops and Bottoms as well. An astonishing feat considering that most competitors are from North America where Skinfit does not yet have as strong of a presence as it does in the European markets. Skinfit is by far the most popular European brand and can compete head to head with the big names in the sport.
