The succesful True Wheel Cycles Enduro team of Rob, Dave and Alex are soaking up the pressure to perform at this weekend’s Tweed Enduro.

The Mullumbimby-based True Wheel Cycles Enduro team has had a string of success as it eyes the competition in this weekend’s Tweed Coast Enduro.

The first True Wheel Cycles Olympic distance mixed team got together for the Kingscliff Triathlon in November 2016 and achieved third place.

They backed this up with a strong showing right through 2017 achieving second at the Kingscliff Tri in March and a third in the Byron Bay Tri in May.

The icing on the cake came in December when they entered two teams in the Kingscliff Triathlon and their  Olympic mixed team came first and the sprint mixed team achieved second place.

The team is hoping to match this result at the Tweed.

The team is made up of: Alex Evans (swimmer), who loves to swim and compete and has plenty of experience; Dave Martin from True Wheel Cycles (cyclist), who gets his extra energy from stuffing his pockets full of lollies; and Rob Bele from Chemsave Mullumbimby (runner), who regularly runs half marathons up hills, so is more than prepared for the flat Enduro circuit.
