    Craig Alexander is a beast on a bike. Even when his bike has someone else’s front wheel for a minute. Oakley’s Two-Time Ironman World Champion powered through a flat tire on the bike course to emerge victorious at Ironman World Championship 70.3 in Last Vegas – topping the talent-packed field with a dominating run portion and an impressive ride after having to switch out the flat. The Shimano Bike Crew, who accidentally replaced his front wheel with one that sat earlier that morning on Andy Potts’ bike, quickly placed a new tire – allowing Craig to recover and power his way to the win. Potts, who pulled off an insane swim, lead for a bit. But a hard-charging Alexander took the reins on his bike – pushing the pace and bringing the lead group together.
