bradName: Brad

Nickname: Many people call me Braddles, I have no idea why!

Proudest triathlon moment: It has to be completing my first Ironman. A year of hard training all fell into place on the day and I succeed in reaching my goal time.

My favourite training location: Galston Gorge and Kurnell. I don't mind Stanwell Tops but its been a few years since I ventured there.

My coach is always telling me: It's time in the saddle that will make me a better rider.

I relax before a race by: Going to a movie, reading a book and eating way too much.

My most treasured possession is: Can I say my kids? My kids mean the world to me. In triathlon terms it would be my bike, I invest a lot of time with it and the results are starting to show.

I'm happiest when: I am active, I love it! Also, and in no way second, when I am with Bec. She calms me like no other and, as corny as it sounds, completes me as a person.

When I'm not training or racing you can find me: Helping people reach their fitness goal with my personal training services.

When I was a kid I wanted to: Be a chef. I actually completed 3 years as an apprentice before changing directions.

My last meal would be: A burger with chips and a big bowl of Sara Lee honeycomb ice cream.

I'm inspired by: People like Macca, Crowie and Lance as they are amazing athletes (despite recent indiscretions by some).
