“My name is Troy Wheeler, 21, from Torbay. I am an extremely passionate mountain bike (XC/Endurance MTB) racer having competed for many years in both the UK and Asia. My most recent achievement being Exposure 24/12 6th place in pairs in a very strong field of elite and ex-elite national riders. I have made the recent and crazy change to start competing in ultra-endurance events with hopes next year to compete at the U23 World Championships(24HR) in Italy, potentially the U23 European Championships(24HR) in the Czech Republic, and then competing at a potential Marathon series next year, alongside the Marathon British Championships. I am currently training hard with my coach Jon Fearne (e3coach) with hopes of competing for good positions in these events. Alongside the Ultra-Endurance events I will be competing through the winter in the regional XC series “Soggy Bottom” – well known for their awesome, fast, and technical tracks; this should keep the fun and focus there through the winter. I am excited for the times ahead with MDCC and am looking forward to the development, support, and friendships I will build at the club. “
