2023 Ironman World Championship Nice Bike: Kristian Hogenhaug’s BMC Speedmachine 01

Even though the name might not be familiar to North American triathlon fans, it should be. Denmark’s Kristian Hogenhaug has had some big results in Europe—including a win at Ironman Hamburg in 2019, a runner-up finish at Ironman Frankfurt in 2021, wins at Challenge Almere and Challenge Salou, and a third-place finish at Ironman Hamburg earlier this year. Like countryman and Nice favorite Magnus Ditlev, Hogenhaug is also known for his dangerous bike (he had the fastest split, 3:57, at Hamburg this year). Expect to see the 32-year-old move up once he hits the road out of T1 on board his all-new BMC Speedmachine 01.
