Reed in Top 10 at Escape from Alcatraz

Battling through an illness, Maxxis’ sponsored rider Matt Reed made the top ten at the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon, held June 1 in San Francisco, California. 

A punishing event even for athletes who aren’t sick, the Escape from Alcatraz calls for competitors to swim 1.5 miles from Alcatraz to San Francisco, complete an 18-mile bicycle ride and finish with an 8-mile run through Golden Gate Park. Reed counted on Maxxis’ Forza tubular tires for the cycling portion of the contest. 

Maxxis congratulates Matt Reed on his valiant effort and thanks him for choosing the brand of champions.
