Free AlphaFly offered to any qualified athletes with no obligation to wear them. Just show up and take.
I've got a question, does Reed Fischer just train with Tinman as an unattached/unofficial athlete? Always thought he was attached and got confused when I saw him in Nikes
As for Fischer, his agent Josh Cox says that Fischer has agreed to terms with a sponsor and expects a deal to be announced in the next few days. His raceday footwear situation is still up in the air. Even if Fischer doesn’t sign with Nike, the Vaporflys are a possibility.
“When you talk about getting a deal done this close to a major event — and for most of these athletes, this is the biggest event they have — I think there’s an understanding from the companies, what have they been racing in, what are they comfortable in?” Cox says. “And to be totally frank, that’s been a lot of the conversation lately…
“[The company] has given him some leeway. But honestly, Reed has to get the shoes. Reed doesn’t have the prototypes yet. That’s where we’re at with this brand.”
What’s clear is that the Vaporflys have changed the game. Not just on the roads, but in the negotiating room.
So there you have it - he's got a deal with another brand but will be racing in the VF. Clearly THE ATHLETES THINK THE SHOES MATTER
Theory: Rojo is apoplectic about Nike offering free shoes to everyone and therefore, in contrast to other media outlets covering it, refusing to give it any coverage on this website.
Especially amusing since he’s given Nike tons of free coverage by complaining about them, but now that they’re handing out shoes like candy, well, mentioning that would just go against his journalistic integrity now wouldn’t it?
But still just a theory.
