Ian Redmond - Athlete Ambassador
Have you always been into sport?
Yes I have always been at the sport cycling since a young age. I took a break for a few years but I got back at it in 2019 and I'm enjoying it more then ever.
How did you first get into triathlon?
I have never done anything triathlons. I mainly compete in road cycle races.
What has been your favourite race to date and why?
Last year after coming back into the sport, I attacked from the line with another rider. We were away all day up the road and I managed to get second and get upgraded to Cat 3.
What is your proudest achievement?
Winning my local summer league. I was a cat 3 cyclist and I started with the cat 1/2s for training purposes and each week I was getting in the top 3 and won the overall league by 11 points.
Have you ever had any racing disasters?
I've had a few crashes but nothing that bad.
How do you overcome setbacks?
If you have a bad day on the bike just put it down to a bad day and leave it behind.
What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?
I wish I had a coach or a mentor when I was younger as who knows, I might have done a lot better in the underage/junior ranks.
What are your goals?
Just to enjoy the sport as much as possible and any goal after that is a bonus.
Who inspires you?
I have always looked up to Nicolas Roche (an Irish professional road bicycle racer who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team DSM.)
