Aloe Up products provide excellent protection against the elements when competing in triathlon. They are always refreshing to apply, feel light on my skin and protect me from the harsh New Zealand sun. Our sport requires hours upon hours of exposure to New Zealand's harsh elements and Aloe up provides the protection I need from the sun which helps keep the body hydrated, therefore aiding performance.
- Jamie Whyte
Initially a keen rugby player off a farm down in Southland, Jamie picked up triathlon as a pastime sport to fill the void once he hung up the rugby boots in 2003. What started out as a fun way to keep fit gradually evolved towards competitive age group racing and eventually competing professionally.
He has become an extremely consistent performer with multiple podium finishes on the international 70.3 Ironman series before stepping up to full iron distance racing with immediate success. In his second time competing over the full distance, he led the pro men’s field from start to finish to win Challenge Wanaka in 2011. He has placed on the podium in five of his eight starts over the full distance.
