Interview Tri-Adventure Antelopes

What is your ranking?
As an antelope we are fairly low on the food chain. We sit somewhere between grass and lions.

For what reasons do you want to participate in the World Championship?
Look it’s close to Africa so we can get there easily. We are only allowed to travel in live-cattle-export-boats so it’s hard to get around. Add in trying to get your bike on there while wearing 4 shirts and 2 jumpers plus a climbing harness to hide luggage weight and you get an idea of how hard it is to travel. We also won a free entry which we need as none of us work, we are full time eating and trying not to get eaten.

How would you describe your team in three words?
Lion King’s Dinner.

What is your wishing list for this year?
A stampede, we love a stampede.

If you could choose one sportsman that represents the best your team spirit, who would it be?
Sandi’s Me Mum – Australian hall of fame greyhound.

What is the motto or the philosophy of the team?
When in doubt – run.

What is the funniest moment you experienced during your training or race?
We once ran through a live firing range but to be honest it was similar to our daily routine.

What is your guilty pleasure? The one thing you could hardly live without?
Lip balm.
