Meet the Team :: Ruth Bradbrook

Here’s Ruth. The latest recruit to Team Bike Science – Planet X for 2011. Ruth’s a STRONG biker with eyes on beating as much of the pro field (and all of the age groupers!) at this years Ironman Wales. A few words from Ruth…

“I’ve been doing triathlon for roughly 10 years. Was a swimmer as a child and then started to do some running, then about 10 years ago had a go at triathlon for a few years, had a bit of a gap doing other sports including kayaking when I did an open sea crossing from scotland to ireland and back in a weekend to see my uncle and for a pint or 2 of guiness :-) I then got back into it with more of a focus from 2009

Main achievements to date:
2007 world bog snorkelling triathlon ladies winner and world record holder!
2009 silver at european long distance champs, 3rd in age group at ironman lanzarotte
2010 qualified for hawaii at Ironman UK where I was also fastest ‘non pro’ and beat a couple of the back end of the pro field :-) in a time of 10:38
2010 7th in age group at kona in 10:29! And loved every minute of it
2011 2nd at weymouth middle distance; 1st at west wales 100 mile TT

Aims for 2011:
Win age group at national 100 mile TT champs
Win age group and be fastest ‘non pro’ women at Ironman Wales. Aiming to do a 3.30 marathon run, would love to get close to 10 hrs but I think the bike course might be a bit too hilly for this.

Sub 10hr Ironman”
