Participants of the 2014 ITU World Triathlon Chicago will benefit from a new partnership with Raceday Transport, the event's Official Bike Transport Provider announced by the event organizing committee.
All athletes competing in the June 27-29 event can use Raceday Transport's services to ship their bikes to the event through the company's Box & Ship options or Fully-Assembled Transport. Raceday Transport will offer all event participants a $50 discount on traditional Box & Ship services and Fully-Assembled Transport.
