Anthony Shippard is a man on a mission. Not content with just being an Elite cyclist, Anthony is also dedicated to performance improvement and coaching. All of which makes him a perfect ambassador for Pure Edge products.
Anthony begun his professional career as a Triathlete in Great Britain and France, but it’s pure riding that courses through his veins. Competing at the very highest levels (World, European, National, and French Grand Prix) has given him a broad skillset, and even today he can still be seen racing in Cross-Country, Enduro, and Road Criteriums.
However, his laser focus is on the ultimate challenge of marathon mountain biking, where his incredible stamina is best suited. He has garnered consecutive top 5 finishes in the National XCM series in Australia and New Zealand.
The 2014 season saw Anthony finish 6th in the Elite Maverick Marathon Series, including a 2nd place at the 3 Ring Circus Marathon in July, a 6th place in the Capital Punishment, and then a 4th place finish with his teammate, in the season ending Hellfire Cup in Tasmania.
If that wasn’t enough, this was a season in which Anthony also got married and took time away from the bike to focus on business commitments.
Over the past four years, Anthony has taken his expertise to the field of coaching. His athletes, among some of the best mountain bike and Cyclo-Cross riders in Australia, have won multiple state and national competitions and titles, across all genders, age-groups, and levels.
It was his keen desire to ensure maximum performance and training outcomes, that brought Anthony to Pure Edge – as his holistic approach to performance improvement and training was perfect for the nutritional support that Pure Edge offers.
2015 is set to be a massive year for Anthony and Pure Edge.
