Tell us a bit more about yourself James:
Grew up running, riding and sporting in general, started triathlon at 12y/o and loved the ride/run, swam like a rock. Crossed over from triathlon to Multisport and AR in 2006 (17y/o) and have never looked back. Fit my races around my uni degree but train because I love it. My bikes are my girlfriend :)
