  • Rising Scottish star Lesley Paterson joins 2011 roster

(Kohala Coast, HI) –Trek/K•Swiss, the world’s most successful triathlon team, announced at the team’s training camp on Hawaii’s Kohala Coast that it has added the world’s #2-ranked Xterra triathlete, Lesley Paterson, to an already-stacked 2011 roster. A constant podium threat on the Xterra circuit, Paterson is looking to take the next step in her promising career with a program renowned for its depth and talent.

“The thing I’m most excited about is Trek’s meticulous professionalism,” said Paterson. “They have been at the top of cycling for so long now, how could you not want to be part of this team? Yes, their precision engineering is a draw, but their reputation for working with every athlete as an individual, with individual needs, is something I’m really looking forward to.”

With 23 major triathlon victories around the globe aboard their team-issue Trek Speed Concept 9.9, Trek/K•Swiss far and away outperformed any other triathlon program in 2010 and the team shows no signs of regressing in 2011. The team kicked off their 2011 training camp February 14, choosing to sweat along the lava fields of the Hawaiian home of the Ironman World Championship.

Unique to the individual nature of the triathlon world, Trek/K•Swiss is a team comprised of the world’s best athletes that share in training while supporting each other throughout the world triathlon calendar. Featuring some of the sport’s top Ironman, Xterra, 70.3, and Olympic distance threats, the 2011 Trek/K•Swiss roster includes Chris Lieto, Julie Dibens, Joe Gambles, Fraser Cartmell, Matt Lieto, Paul Matthews, Heather Jackson, Andrew Yoder, and Lesley Patterson.
