One of the sport’s most likeable characters, we welcomed Britain’s leading long-distance triathlete Joe Skipper into the dhb fold in 2020. We shared a vision of creating our most technically advanced tri-sport apparel, with the first developments of that collaboration launching in spring 2021.
Having somewhat stumbled into Ironman racing with fifth place at Barcelona in 2012, Joe’s defining moment came in Texas in 2015. With life as a professional athlete on the line, he produced the third fastest bike leg in Ironman history on his way to a career-saving second place.
Never afraid to share a joke or speak his mind, Joe’s honest approach has continued to win him fans ever since. He has finished seventh (2018) and sixth (2019) at Kona, while victories at Ironman UK, Florida (2019) and New Zealand (2020) have seen him soar to fifth in the PTO world rankings.
Joe has earned his success the hard way, proving there are no limits to what you can achieve. Last year he put his cycling prowess to good use by breaking the British 12-hour time trial record with a distance of 325.5 miles and this year the Kona worlds will once again be the primary target.
Joe Skipper's key pieces, suited for any race.
