South Africa’s Raynard Tissink is a top-five finisher at Kona and the 2010 Ironman South Africa champion. Raynard will take on Marino Vanhoenacker, among others, in Sunday’s Ironman triathlon in Port Elizabeth.

We rolled Tissink’s bike out of his hotel room in PE to grab a few snaps of it. Tissink is currently riding a Trek Speed Concept, but he’s not sponsored by Trek. He does have the support of a bike shop in South Africa. This is what the 2010 Ironman South Africa winner’s bike looked like as of Saturday afternoon. Bottles, etc. weren’t on it yet.
