Muc-Off, the global leaders in bicycle and motorcycle care, are excited to announce a new partnership with The BMC Pro Triathlon Team.
"We’re stoked to be able to now support a professional triathlon team. It’s been a long-term goal of ours to build on our support mountain bike riders and cyclists, by adding triathletes to the Muc-Off family. What BMC have created so far is really exciting, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for the team and our partnership." – Alex Trimnell, CEO at Muc-Off
The BMC Pro Triathlon Team powered by 2XU is one of the leading and most ambitious projects in today's professional triathlon world. The team is made up of seven world-class athletes: Pablo Dapena Gonzalez, Kristian Høgenhaug, Chris Leiferman, Katrina Matthews (née Rye), Patrik Nilsson, Max Neumann and Chelsea Sodaro. The basis of the team is a combination of bike manufacturer BMC Switzerland and sporting apparel company 2XU. Since the launch of the international Team in 2014, the results have been incredible. The team has finished on the podium in nearly half of all races, claiming over one hundred wins in the past six years. Including eight continental championship titles, two vice-world titles, two podium finishes at the World Championship Ironman in Hawaii and victories in a number of the most prestigious races on the calendar.
“We are really looking forward to the partnership with Muc-Off. Our entire vision as a team is based around offering our athletes the best possible support in order to optimize their performances. We constantly strive for innovation, to find technical and material advantages and to provide our athletes with the most competitive set up. With the BMC Timemachine 01 we strongly believe our athletes are able to ride one of the fastest bikes on the planet. The partnership with Muc-Off enables us to clean, protect and lube to maximize performance. In addition to the 3-step bike care programme to optimize efficiency, Muc-Off is constantly innovating. As part of a most recent ground-breaking innovation, the BMC Pro Triathlon Team will be using the game-changing L.O.P.S oversized pulley wheel system and the fastest ever lubricant and chain combination. In all we do as a team we strive to provide our athletes with best-in-class support. Having the right products to maintain and protect their bikes, combined with the perfectly optimized drivetrain allows our athletes to maximise efficiency, reduce friction and optimize overall performance.” – Bob De Wolf, CEO of the BMC Pro Triathlon Team
Muc-Off will be supplying the team with a full range of products from their Clean, Protect and Lube collections. They will be also using Muc-Off’s newly launched Lightweight Oversized Precision Shifting system (L.O.P.S) – which was first debuted by Mikel Landa in the 2020 Tour de France. Combining this with their world-class hydrodynamic lube, will provide the BMC Pro Triathlon team with an advantage only currently available to a very select group teams across the globe.
Back in 1991 Rex and Marilyn Trimnell got things started with X-Lite UK. After designing and manufacturing the world’s first twin crown bicycle fork, Rex created a perfectly pink spray to clean his kit. To make a long story short, Rex’s cleaner was the best thing since sliced bread, and it wasn’t long before word got out and Muc-Off was born. Fast-forward to now and Muc-Off is now the go-to brand for top riders. And, in case you haven’t noticed, they do a bit more than our original pink cleaner these days.
