37yo And ‘Better & Faster’
Wurf said after experimenting with a number of different approaches to his training over the past few years he has been getting ‘better and faster.’
“I’m focused on Kona in October but there’s also an opportunity to be of use to the team when needed before that,” he said. “I know lots of people in the team and have trained with many of the riders, and I feel like I fit in with the culture here.”
“This is an organisation I’ve dreamt of being part of since it started and it’s amazing to officially pull on the colours. I am really excited and proud to represent Team INEOS.”
From Rowing At Athens Olympics To Team Ineos
Wurf is well known in pro sporting & cycling circles. He competed for Australia in the sport of rowing at the 2004 Olympics before transitioning full time cycling. He rode at WorldTour level for Fuji Servetto (2009), Liquigas (2011) and Cannondale (2013-14), before taking up Ironman in 2016.
Wurf is a regular training partner with Team Ineos riders, particularly Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and Pavel Sivakov. He recently joined Froome on a 309km training ride before hopping off the bike and embarking on a 20+ km run.
