Jan Frodeno is a German triathlete who will fi ght for medals in Beijing 2008. On his way to the next training camp in Bolzano/Italy we had the chance to talk to the charismatic 26-years old athlete.


SRAM: Hi Jan, what about your preparations for 19/08/2008?
Jan Frodeno: I feel great! I just came back from the World Cup in Korea, where I reached the third place. The competition went very well and I feel that I still have more potential.

SRAM: How do you feel taking part in the Olympic Games 2008?
Jan Frodeno: Awesome! The participation at the games is an exceptional event! My biggest dream ever comes true! Sometimes I wake up at night because I am so excited about this special day.

SRAM: What kind of bike are you riding in competitions and at the Olympic Games?
Jan Frodeno: I ride a standard carbon road bike from Felt, just like other road pros, but with aero handlebars. This is not a special time trial bike. The routes are similar to a criterium. A lot of curves, many accelerations. I am enthusiastic about SRAM Red: super fast shifting and powerful brakes. Depending on the course I choose between Standard 53/39 or Compact 50/36. The looks of the new group are an extra highlight…

SRAM: How much training do you put in during the Olympic season?
Jan Frodeno: 15,000 km on the bike, 4,500 km running and 1,200 km in the water.

SRAM: When you are not training, what do you do?

Jan Frodeno: Then I am standing in my kitchen, trying out new things. I love to cook.
