The Untameable Origin

Untameable Triathlon Club

The incarnation of the Untameable Tri club, came from a misinterpretation of the abilities of the president himself.  A maverick and lone wolf by nature, trusting in his own methodologies, a fellow swimmer enquired to me, as to whether I was ‘training him’ – to which I answered, ‘he is untrainable’…..  An immediate (and deliberate) misunderstanding ensued, with the president declaring himself ‘Untameable’.  As a newly formed club of friends and random encounters, the values are somewhat unconventional and combine a blend of tough love, with alternative motivational techniques – the latter including car park ‘beer club’ and a lot of karaoke.  Despite all this, the membership has resulted in a surprisingly unique group of multi-sport athletes that love to train and banter hard.

The UT’s president, mentor & leader found himself on the tarmac this weekend, following a slo-mo wheel clip with a rider.  

Fortunately the outcome was cut hands and road rash, with minimal damage to his Cervelo pride and joy.   Commenting hours after the event – “I was drawn into the pastel coloured socks” which suddenly stopped pedalling, leaving me no-where to go, but crashing to the deck.  

A passing cyclist who was an eye witness to the crash, mused – “I thought it was a strange place for a selfie”.   

El Presidente plans to be back on the bike this weekend.
