Spencer Smith tackles Ironman Hawaii on pink Planet-X Stealth
This weekend sees the biggest race in the Ironman triathlon calendar - the Ford Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
We reported earlier in the year on the sponsorship between Spencer Smith and Planet-X. Continuing something of a strange fetish for Spencer Smith, the Doncaster-based company have created a pink version of their Stealth Pro Carbon.
Spencer will be riding the Hawaii edition bike this weekend. His progress can be followed at ironmanlive.com.
