Discipline: Cross Triathlon
Competition Level: International
Bikes: Race Bikes - Specialized Stumpjumper, Specialized CruX, Giant TCR Advanced Pro, Training Bike - Giant Defy.
Bike Setup: Dave is a big fan of Rotor oval chainrings for their additional efficiency and runs them on both race and training bikes. Fast rolling and tubeless, Dave runs Specialized tyres with Continental sealant to avoid punctures. Dave is also uses a Rotor power meter to maximise his training effort.
Starting off racing triathlon over a decade ago Dave then followed the call of the wild to combine his love of mountain bike riding with the physical endurance test of triathlons and now races cross triathlon and duathlon events on the National and International Circuit.
While continuing his Cross Tri racing Dave has also moved into endurance racing in order to ride further and faster by pushing his limits beyond what he thought possible. This year Dave hopes to be on the podium at the British 24hour Championships.

We asked our Team Tredz rider Dave Bowkett what setup he'll be using at the Relentless 24 race on 29th October. Good luck Dave, we're cheering you on.
Its been an amazing and long summer of riding for most of us, and although the racing season isn't quite finished yet there's no avoiding the reality that winter is definitely coming. What options than does your sun loving cyclist have to get through the dark cold winter months that are lurking?
Who doesn’t like a new toy right?! One of the best bits of racing bikes seriously is when you get to go collect a shiny new bike! After 9 years racing triathlon and duathlon all over the world, this year I will be focusing slightly differently and taking on some 24-hour mountain bike races, with the goal being to race at the 2017 world championships...
