Timmy Hortz

Name Timmy “Trouble” Hortz
Age group Male 30-34
Favourite race Straddie Pure Tri. Toughest sprint race with an awesome trail run leg
Hardest race you’ve had to get too Western Sydney 70.3. Only way to get in and out was by driving and traffic took an hour to get from the gates to the carpark. Snuck into transition with 2 mins to spare
Hardest race you’ve done Western Sydney 70.3 – Running with an injury is never great
Biggest rookie error Forgetting sunglasses on a 90k training ride along the Queen K in Kona
Best piece of racing or training equipment My growing collection of Hokas
How long in the sport 2 years
(In a short time Timmy has lived up to the trouble in his name, snatching some great results in a highly completive age group, while he is essentially still new to the sport. He has a lot of room to grow and we will be pushing him hard this year.)
Best thing about triathlon Race day vibes. The culture of the tri community is unparalleled and awesome to be part of.
