Rider Story - Crowdfunding his way to Perth

Ade’s journey only began in February of this year when he decided to enter the qualifying event at the Tour of Cambridge in the UK.

He had been training to re-qualify for the European Duathlon champs when injury put a stop to his running. Instead of letting adversity stop him, Ade refocused his goals and decided to go give the time trial a go. Racing well, he qualified first time for age group 45-49!

In finding the path less travelled to Perth Ade turned to crowdfunding to fund this once in a lifetime opportunity. 

His idea paid off as he successfully reached his crowdfunding target all but securing his spot on a plane to Australia to compete in The 2016 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships Perth.

Congratulations Ade!
