From a press release

Daniela Ryf has been virtually unbeatable over the last few years - the only blemishes on a near perfect two-year race run was having to pull out of the Ironman European championship due to hypothermia and a fourth-place finish at the Ironman 70.3 world championship. Other than that she's won ever race she's entered since the beginning of 2015, including two world championship titles in Kona, a world 70.3 title, the Ironman European Championship and an impressive 8:22 clocking at Challenge Roth.

Her goals for the 2017 season are a third consecutive victory at the Ironman World Championship in Kona and Chrissie Wellington's world record at Challenge Roth.

For the next three years Ryf will rely on the technical expertise of DT Swiss and Swiss Side. Teaming up with Swiss Side, DT Swiss has kicked of the #roadrevolution18, which will bring up a complete new range of innovative and benchmark setting products.

Ryf will ride on these new products and also be a vital part of the development & cooperation process throughout the next three years. Swiss Side’s aerodynamic experts will be in charge of analyzing and optimizing Ryf’s bike setup and the entire bike/ rider system in the wind tunnel to ensure even faster bike splits in the upcoming races.
