Bikerumor.com Founder Expands into Tri

Published October 13, 2011

GREENSBORO, NC (BRAIN)—Bikerumor.com founder and head honcho Tyler Benedict just launched Triathlonrumor.com, which as its name suggests focuses on triathletes.

“There will be some crossover with Bikerumor.com, like some of the bikes and components, but we will add coverage of wetsuits and running gear, so there will be plenty of unique content. It’s a quickly growing market and I’ve gotten very good feedback on the site so far,” Benedict said.

Benedict had a soft launch of the site last week to get the bugs out and develop enough content so the site had some heft when people started finding it.

Given that Bikerumor.com has grown beyond the one man show it currently is, the new site expansion has made clear to Benedict he needs help. So he is looking for someone to help manage editorial content on Bikerumor.com while he gives the new triathlete startup more of his time.
