PRO TIPS WITH MICHAEL LORI
Lives: Perth, Australia
I am a professional triathlete. I grew up racing for Australia as a junior, whilst also competing in cross country. I have since switched to racing for Canada and race on the World Cup and World series circuit.
Years racing/adventure racing:
I have been adventure racing since I was 14 years old, so 12 years, my first race was the inaugural Anaconda adventure race in Dunsborough and I have been hooked ever since!
Looking forward to about X-Adventure Dusnborough:
Racing my first Off-road Triathlon in such a beautiful place! Dunsborough was where I competed in my first trail run as part of the Anaconda adventure race in 2006, so looking forward to doing all 3 legs this time.
I think X-Adventure is a great season ender for most - also it now represents an opportunity for people to collect points.
Upcoming events: World Cup triathlons; Mooloolaba 11th March, New Zealand 25th March, X-Adventure 22nd April, Triathlon World Series Japan 11th May.
Motto: You put your foot on the line, you better be prepared to race

Coming from an ITU draft legal background, he has drawn upon his race day experiences and blunders to prepare some Pre-Race and Race Day tips which he hopes will help X-Adventure competitors towards their best, or most perfect race yet.
