Andrew Starykowicz 70.3 Puerto Rico

Andrew Starykowicz Repeats Victory At Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico



Andrew Starykovicz climbed atop the podium once again at Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico. The triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team put up an amazing performance as usual, taking control of the race on his Ordu to earn his second consecutive win in San Juan.

Germany’s Andi Boecherer was at the front after completing the 1.9km swim, with Starykowicz and Great Britain’s Will Clarke a few seconds back. The setting was great for the American triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team to start the engine on the 90km bike course, and Andrew’s spark-ignition on his Orbea bike came soon.

‘Mr. 402’ dropped strong rivals behind one by one, putting on a 5:27 gap on Boecherer and 6:21 on Clarke, with Collins almost 9 minutes down at T2. In the 21km run, the leading trio were likely to land on the podium. It was soon clear that the Briton had very strong legs, as halfway down the marathon Clarke overpowered Boecherer and set sight on Starykowicz. He was unable to bridge the gap the man sponsored by Orbea and Orca had built in the bike leg, though.

Following his 5th spot at Ironman Panama and his great performance at Ironman 70.3 California, Starykowicz has come back to the top of the podium with his second win at Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico. We think this will be another great year for the triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team. Congratulations, Andrew!

Orbea Avant Cycling Plus Award

Orbea Avant Takes Cycling Plus Award.

In the recent Cycling Plus ‘Bikes of the Year’ awards,’ Orbea has been awarded the Best Disc Brake bike accolade for its new Avant.

"A truly stunning frameset which delivers a beautiful ride with excellent braking" was the assessment of the Cycling Plus team following their time with the Avant.

The Avant project has a geometry has been defined as ‘Sportive’ by Orbea, which means capable of delivering all-day riding pleasure, without compromising on performance when called upon to deliver in a sprint or a spirited KOM effort. The reviewers noted this, stating that the geometry ‘suggest a stable, predictable and ‘possibly’ dull straightforward sportive bike, what you actually get is a steed that’s bursting with fun.’

Orbea’s commitment to the Disc Brake concept is clearly visible throughout the Avant range, with no less than five models available with disc brake options, four carbon and one alloy. The testers also noted thatOrbea’s ability to customize components for the consumer means that the basic package can be upgraded in key areas such as drivetrain, wheels and finishing kit, which makes the Avant one of the most flexible packages on the market.

New Orbea Rallon

New Orbea Rallon: We may not be racing but that doesn´t mean I am not trying to beat you!

Low, long and slack with 160mm of gravity-tuned travel, the Rallon can get you to the bottom of the hill as quickly as you dare. Short stays and a steep seat angle give the agility and efficiency to pedal up for one more lap.

Advanced Dynamics 

Advanced Dynamics is the heart of every Orbea suspension bike. It is a process we developed in conjunction with CEIT (Technological Research and Studies Center of Gipuzkoa, Basque Country) that allows us to model and test our suspension platforms.

The result is a dynamic suspension system that is tuned for variable trail conditions with a leverage rate curve that is specifically matched to the spring and damper. Advanced Dynamics transforms virtual designs into real, highly-refined machines. Bikes for demanding riders that are faster, more fun to ride and far beyond ordinary.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane!

It’s Ordu-rykowicz!

#Andrew Starykowicz did it again. He shattered the Ironman bike split record on his Orbea Ordu again.

#Orbea Ordu, the fastest bike ever.

#It took the triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team 4:02:17 to complete the bike segment at Ironman Florida, won by Víctor del Corral.


4:02:17 is the new magic number of Orbea and Andrew Starykowicz. Last year, the man of Orbea Orca Tri Team took everybody by surprise beating the Ironman bike split world record by getting off the bike at 4:04:39. It was in Florida – his favourite place to continue breaking limits. Coming back to the same event meant a challenge and he beat it off, finishing more than two minutes earlier.

Starykowicz and Ordu Display Speed at Kona

#Mr. 404 has done it again. He put his cards on the table early into the bike leg of the Ironman World Championship to eventually be the first off the bike and to start the run.

Andrew started off the day walking into the 75 degree water as the sun came up over the the Big Island of Hawaii. Being a great swimmer he was able to position himself in the lead group, and out of trouble the entire swim.


Finishing in the lead group Andrew was able to swiftly move out of T1, and headed out on the bike in second position. Andrew said the night before the race that he would be patient on the early portion of the bike, but he instinctually decided that he would take charge of the race as he dropped the hammer as soon as his cleats hit the pedal.
