Suzie Richards has stepped up to racing pro at 70.3 distance this year. A former World Duathlon champion and multi-time winner of the Slateman, we talk to her about her journey into triathlon, her decision to race pro, bike positioning, core strength and flexibility, and how she used 3 months of rehab time after a foot operation to train her mind while her leg was in a cast!
This is an inspiring story of someone trying to do everything she can to be the best triathlete she can be. 'I'd rather be the worst of the best, as long as that's the best I can do,' she tells us :)
