Bring it on!
gebioMized and STAPS support the Australian triathlon pro Cameron Wurf.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could just pick your partners based on sympathy scores? We did – and will be working with the Australian triathlete Cameron Wurf in the future. The term “triathlete” falls quite short for a man with a history like his though. “Multisport talent” describes it probably more aptly. After all, Wurf started as a rower at the Olympic Games, rode the Giro d’Italia twice as a professional cyclist and won the title in the individual time trial at the Oceania Championships.
Now triathlon it is. Cameron Wurf has been a professional triathlete since 2016, went directly for long-distance races – and did so with great success, especially with two Ironman wins: in Wales in 2017 and last May in Australia. His showcase discipline – which is not a surprise considering that he is a former cycling pro – is the bike split! And this is exactly where gebioMized and STAPS come into play. Even though Cameron Wurf holds the record on the bike course in Kona by a considerable margin, he still sees potential for improvement especially in his riding position.
“The way that you guys actually spend an entire day saying ‘no, first make sure that’s a position that works for you and then we go and look at the speed’ was really reassuring for me that you weren’t just any other fitting crew.”

When Cameron came up to us, we weren’t really sure how to make such a fast man even faster. But the Australian was convinced: “I am sure that you are the right people for the job!” So he paid us a visit in Germany.
After the first tests in the gebioMized concept lab in Cologne and in the velodrome in Büttgen, Wurf was confirmed: “The way that you guys actually spend an entire day saying ‘no, first make sure that’s a position that works for you and then we go and look at the speed’ was really reassuring for me that you weren’t just any other fitting crew.”
