We are excited to announce that we are opening up the application process today to join Team Freespeed for 2017.
Our team is lucky enough to have the support of some of the best sponsors in triathlon and alongside the generous products each athlete receives you can expect funding assistance towards race entries and travel.
A large part of our role for sponsors is driving social media awareness so you must be a visible and engaging member of the triathlon community as well as having the ability to race fast.
This year we are searching for an amateur athlete (or athletes) with a proven background of high performance at long distance. Kona is our focus as always and you must be able to demonstrate that you have the ability and desire to stand on the age group podium at Kona in October 2017.
We have a history of success in this regard with nine Kona podiums since 2012 – an overall amateur win for Catherine Faux in 2013, three second place finishes for Alison Rowatt, a second for Charlie Pennington, two fourth places for Sam Baxter, a fourth place for Richard Hobson and a fifth place for Andy Greenleaf.
We will consider applications from outside the UK but you must demonstrate an influence within the UK triathlon community.
We will be closing the application process at midnight on Sunday 11th December and we anticipate announcing the final Team for 2017 ahead of the New Year. All applications will be in strictest confidence, no applicant names will be made public at this stage.
Please read the following carefully. Only applications on the form below will be considered. At this stage we will not accept or read any additional emails, CVs or other information relating to the application process. All fields on the form must be completed.
