Triathlon champion and Byron Bay resident Tim Reed will race the Byron Bay triathlon May 12-13 as he rebuilds his fitness ahead of a US racing season.
The 27-year-old trains with a number of professional athletes under coach Grant Giles’s Aeromax team in Lennox Head.
The Byron Bay triathlon will be his final domestic event before travelling to the United States to race on the highly competitive professional circuit.
‘I realise how lucky I am,’ he says. ‘I have a dream job, the best place in the world to train, the best coach to train under and some of the best Aussie pros to train with.
‘Not to mention an amazing wife who puts up with all the training and travel.’
Reed is currently ranked third in the world over the Ironman 70.3 distance.
