"Quintana Roo's partnership with USA Triathlon fits our DNA perfectly," said Peter Hurley, Quintana Roo CEO and president. "One of our top goals is to provide up-and-coming triathletes with the equipment they need to develop to their full potential, so it's a privilege to have QR's bikes as part of USA Triathlon's High Performance Development Program." 

"The QR brand has become synonymous with our sport by providing both elite-level lines for pros as well as affordable performance bikes for amateurs," said Chuck Menke, USA Triathlon Chief Marketing Officer.
