Being a member of the Timex Factory Team is not only an honor but it does bring a couple of perks. Today, I finally upgraded my ancient DeSoto T1 wetsuit with a BlueSeventy Helix. The Desoto was a fantastic suit and it got me not only this far in triathlon, but kept me warm in the chilly San Francisco Bay waters. However, five years of neglect, abuse and use, and it was time to replace the suit.
The only downside: I can’t zip the suit by myself. But the Helix is a top of the line suit which I would never have owned if it wasn’t for the Timex Factory Team.
The only mystery left: What are the white gloves for?
