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.
