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.
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.
Father of two and project manager of an inspiring young sports coaching apprenticeship called ‘Coach Core’. Gary works with a number of high profile employers in the sports industry to provide places of employment and unparalleled educational opportunities to take young people from challenging backgrounds and give them the best possible route into employment and/or further education in the sports industry. Gary is currently ETU European age group champion in aquathlon, was age group winner and 2nd overall at the National Middle Distance championships last season at The Vitruvian, and club captain of South London Harriers Triathlon Club. This year he qualified for the Kona Ironman World Championships at his first attempt! 2019 will see a focus on running events and we can’t wait to get him into our running kit!
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
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.
