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.

The first main aim for this switch was to race at the 2017 world championships in Finale Ligure, a normally Enduro destination on the Italian Riveria. Last weekend that box was ticked, and with a very satisfying top 10 result too. There's still a massive amount for me to learn about what is a very unique discipline, but I can still be satisfied with my performance on what was a very tough day out on the bike!
