Our next member focus is someone we’ve featured before: Gavin Borg.
Gavin has been a member of MX Endurance for over a year, entering as one of our race team ambassadors. He was training towards doing his first 70.3 and first full ironman in 2021, which had already been deferred from 2020 due to the pandemic. However, with the slew of race deferrals that also happened last year, he ended up doing his first half this May in Port Macquarie instead, which he counts as one of his biggest triathlon achievements.
He is now building towards Ironman 70.3 Western Sydney and will also have a few ultra trail and mountain bike races over the winter. Having put on hold his full ironman debut as he savors the 70.3 distance (he says it’s his favorite), his big goal on the horizon is qualifying for the cross triathlon world championships.
While his coach structures his daily workouts, he sometimes taps into the MX library. His favorite? Tops and Tails.
We asked for a non-triathlon piece of trivia about him, and he said, “I eat way too much chocolate and not enough veggies.” Well, chocolate is made from beans, and beans are vegetables. So chocolate is a salad ;)
Gavin continues to improve in triathlon, putting in the time and effort and striving to be at his best. We are proud to count him on the MX Endurance team.
Your optimal triathlon cadence is dependent on your sport background, genetic blend of muscle fibres, and physical conditioning.
