Athlete Profile – Damo

Nickname: Damo, Fang or Gromit.

How long have you been doing tri?: 18 months.

How did you get into tri?: I was after a new challenge and a friend pointed me in this direction. I had no clue what to do next, this is where Coach Peta came in and helped with all my questions on how to kick start the sport.

How many bikes do you have?: Just the humble three bikes (ha ha). My Road/Tri bike, an older 29er mountain bike and lastly my old Repco mountain bike I ride to the airport on fly-out day.

What do you want to achieve this season?: Firstly, an injury free season, touch wood. There are five races I have penciled in to race in and fingers crossed I might make a podium in my age group once this season. But not stressed, fun first as always a priority for me.
