2023 Ironman World Championship Nice Bike: Patrick Lange’s Canyon Speedmax CFR

Two-time Ironman World Champion Patrick Lange may have flown slightly under the radar for the last two years, but the 37-year-old German will still be a dangerous player on Sunday’s Ironman World Championship in Nice. In the last two years Lange has run two 2:30 marathons (at Ironman Israel last year and again this year at Challenge Roth). Lange is also planning on being very dangerous on this bike this weekend, as he’s been training in the Alps and in a camp around Nice to prepare for the climbs and technical descents of this year’s World Championship bike course. As such, his team has put together a very specific setup for the unique  bike course—shaving grams wherever possible and adding a few special touches to give him every advantage possible on the bike.

Read below for details on some of the interesting specs on Lange’s Canyon Speedmax CFR.
