Meredith Kessler Leads from the Gun for Victory Over Tempe
While dreary temperatures threatened a tough day at Ironman Arizona, XLAB Champion Meredith Kessler overcame the rough conditions to defend her title with an 8:44:00 win in Tempe!
Kessler led from the start, clinching the fastest swim, bike and run splits over her fellow pro women. Having completed all 12 editions of the race, Kessler knew the speed picks needed to clock the win and selected a Torpedo System 400 for her front-end hydration, Delta 425 on the rear and a Stealth Pocket 400 on her top tube for storing race day essentials. Her unmatched course experience nabbed the 8th fastest female time in M-Dot history.
