Since starting Ironman just over three years ago, he has competed in over 10 Ironman and Xterra races around the world. Always training to improve his PB’s and delving deep into the art of “marginal gains”, and yet is still married?

Lana Pickering

An endlessly patient armchair triathlete, who enjoys the occasional social ride, and would like to explore more of the great south east when she can find time. Though originally from Brisbane, she spent the last 24 years in Cairns working in community engagement and also happily baking treats for colleagues who are now, no doubt, missing her culinary skills.

Jason Henderson

Role: Bike assembler and a bit of sales
Age: 19
Hobbies: Anything that provides an adrenaline rush! And of course everything that involves a bike (working on bikes, riding, building jumps and trails). I just love to have fun.
Riding Background: Been riding for as long as I can remember. Used to be pretty keen on freestyle BMX, just doing tricks with mates, now I have moved onto mountain biking and love the thrill. Started racing downhill events in 2014,and now enduro racing in 2016, never had so much fun in my life.
Favourite place to ride: I can't pick just one place, there are too many good spots! Basically, if it's a mountain bike trail, it's awesome. But I do prefer tracks that are fast, flowy and technical.
Favourite Bike: Loving my Scott Voltage FR710. Perfect for shredding up any trail.
