Luciano is a triathlete who has competed all over the world. He talks to Sundried about training and motivation.
Have you always been into sport?
Yes, I've been an athlete for almost 10 years.
Why did you decide to enter the world of triathlon?
I like the idea of endurance sports and triathlon is a great challenge.
What's been your favourite race to date and why?
My first half Ironman in Thailand. The atmosphere was amazing and it was great sharing the experience with my family.
Have you ever had any racing disasters/your toughest race yet?
Not really, although I have raced in some tough weather conditions.
How do you overcome setbacks?
I keep a cool head and try to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
What advice do you wish you'd been given before you started competing?
This is a great question. Triathlon can be a very expensive sport so I wish someone had told me to start with shorter distances and spend my money more gradually!
What are your goals?
To complete a full Ironman, and to keep improving my performance while having fun.
Who do you take inspiration from?
From my father, he is a cyclist.
What do you like about Sundried and what's your favourite bit of our kit?
The quality is excellent and for such reasonable prices. I love the entire cycling and triathlon collections.
