Pete Jacobs is an Australian Professional Triathlete. He is the 2012 IRONMAN World Champion and the 2011 IRONMAN World Championship runner-up. Jacobs has completed 33 IRONMAN events in his ten year professional career. Jacobs is regarded as one of the worlds premier Ironman swimmers and runners. He has struggled over the past few seasons with an unknown fatigue issue and we love him for that; he doesn't give up and faces a challenge to doing his best just like so many of us. We can relate to him and his toughness and perseverance makes him that much more interesting to follow and more of a pleasure to support. Go Pete!

“Louis Garneau makes incredibly high quality gear that feels great and their ability to completely customize the look of my gear makes it look the business too. That means, I mean business when I put on my LG gear and feel confident enough in it to take on the world, in Kona. My new LG training and race gear is the best I’ve ever had, and so are my new LG Tri 400 bike shoes. These shoes instantly added power to my legs. I now feel I’d handicapped myself by not having LG shoes the last few years. Lastly, my new road and TT helmets are all style, comfort, and performance. I couldn’t be happier to have joined with Louis Garneau to help me go faster.” –Pete Jacobs
For the 2016 season Garneau is supplying Pete with his race and training kit as well as shoes and helmets.
