Taking over the company earlier this year, Adam plans to build on the solid foundations at Tri-Adventure, and he also plans to inject some new adventures into the race portfolio.

He said: “I’ve taken on Tri-Adventure to carry on enjoying what I do and to grow the sport that gave me a sense of adventure. I want to introduce it to others and use my experience from the racing I’ve done to create some great and impressive Adventure Events in the future.

“I feel passionate about creating a community of adventurers who enjoy coming to Tri-Adventure events. We welcome beginners to the sport and give them the support and training they need through our academy, to ensure they get the bug and come back time and time again.
