We’re really proud to be working with the following brand ambassadors in 2019 who will be putting our kit through its paces!
Rachel Coe O’Brien
Rachel has previously represented GB twice in her age group at the Triathlon World Championships at Hyde Park (2013) and Chicago (2015). She has also represented Surrey for cross country running and got stuck in to obstacle course racing (OCR). More recently Rachel has had a break from serious racing to complete a Masters in Physiotherapy. We are looking forward to following her journey as gets back in to Triathlon Racing in 2019 and will be testing our brand new triathlon suit later this year.
An inspirational talent, Jade Jones-Hall is reigning Commonwealth ParaTriathlon Champion and World Silver Medallist as well as adding British Duathlon Champion to her name in April 2019. She has a law degree and is married to fellow GB Athlete, Callum Hall.
Josie has had a very successful 2018 season being crowned Age Group World and European Sprint Duathlon Champion in the 25-29 Age Group. Coming from a running background, Josie enjoys racing for Morpeth Harriers on the road and over cross country, and also took up bike racing in 2018, racing with AlbaRosa CC. She enjoys training on the hills of West Yorkshire as well as Northumberland on trips home to the North East.
Since competing in the Jungle Marathon, a 6 day ultra-marathon through the Amazon Jungle in 2015, Mark “caught the running bug” and has focussed on marathons and ultra-marathons a bit closer to home. 2018 being his most impressive year to date, winning the Race to the King Ultra-marathon in June followed by a marathon PB in Berlin (2:31:53) in September. 2019 sees the return to ultra’s for Mark with the Berghaus Dragons Back in May and an attempt at racing 100 miles at the Autumn 100 in October. Whilst not running, Mark works full-time as a Chartered Surveyor in London, is a father of two, and is in training to become a Coach in Running Fitness.
Gary is ETU European AG champion in aquathlon and current National AG Sprint Distance Triathlon Champion (2nd Overall). He is a two time Middle Distance Champ (2016 AND 2017 with a PB of 3hr 58MINS). He captains South London Harriers Tri Club and in 2018 ran a 1.14 half marathon and a 32.20 10km at the National Road Champs. In August ’18, Gary completed his first Ironman in an incredible 8h55, qualifying for the Worlds in Kona! In his spare time (!!?) he’s a father of two, and project manager of an innovative and inspiring sports coaching apprenticeship called ‘Coach Core’.
Our #OnesToWatch are a small group of talented youth riders who we support on their sporting journey (updated list to follow shortly)
Luke (aka NUKE) Willcocks is an 8 year old BMXer racing for Team Mind BMX who we sponsor. He’s an incredible talent and we’re chuffed to be able to name him as the first of our #onestowatch. In 2018, Luke became World No5 at the World Championships in Baku. Oh, and in his spare time he’s been killing it down at the local skate park
Lewis Dolan has an impressive record as a youth cyclist including ranking 1 in the British Cycling Youth Rankings, 2nd overall National Youth Circuit Series and North East Youth League winner. 2019 is set to be an important development year for Lewis and we look forward to supporting him.
Our Ambassador Programme is currently full for 2019. However, we may expand the programme in the coming months so if you’re interested in becoming a Presca Ambassador or part of our #onestowatch team then drop us a line at [email protected] and let us know why you think you’d be perfect for the job! We will also be announcing our Challenge Ambassadors for 2019 shortly.
