We interviewed Craig Twigg yesterday, the third in our series of British Pro's racing at the Ironman Asia Pacific Championships in Melbourne on Sunday, having spoken to Corinne Abraham and Tom Lowe earlier in the week. We also took a closer look in detail at Corinne's bike, the Trek Speed Concept, but what will the Twiggstar be racing around the 122 miles this weekend?

Craig will be riding a familiar name from British cycling history, but perhaps a new brand to many in the form of this Holdsworth Triath-Elan TT bike, courtesy of a new sponsorship for 2013.

A Corima rear disc / PRO deep rim front - both tubulars - fitted with Continental Sprinter tubs will be Craig's race day wheels, where he will be one of many athletes sitting on an ISM Adamo saddle. Zipp aero bars with the now very popular horizontal mounted 'between the arms' bottle cage.

Craig out for a recent spin on his new stead - he won't be needing quite so many layers in Melbourne this weekend.

I imagine that this will be the only Holdsworth TT bike in the Pro racks at the Ironman Asia Pacific Championships, so finding it shouldn't be a problem... but it's got his name on just in case.

A carbon FSA SL-K Light crank is at the heart of the drive train, with Craig using Rotor Q-Rings. Mechanical Shimano Ultegra does the shifting up front - no sign of a powermeter though.

Nobody should mistake this aero helmet for theirs!
