Andrew Croud : 2012 TransAmerica CYCLIST
Hometown: Portsmouth, England, UK
Bike: Willier Trestina
About me.. Well my name is Andrew Croud, I`m from Portsmouth England UK, but my family live in Virginia Beach VA. I have had a passion for cycling for many years and have taken on various cycling challenges over the years, including Triathlons, but nothing to rival that of cycling clean across the US.
My inspiration for taking up this challenge with bike the US for MS came from a family member who has been living with MS for some years now. I feel this is a fantastic charity, and one I am hoping to help raise loads of money to help fund the valuable research and treatment for others suffering from MS.
In addition to my passion for cycling, long distance running is also a big love of mine. I have completed 6 marathons over the past 3 years, notably including the London 2009 marathon which was my first and most memorable race, No challenge I have undertaken up till now has been as rewarding as passing that finish line on the London marathon, but I am looking forward to the prospect of sur-passing that by completing the Trans america.
For my day to day job, i work as a designer in the fire sprinkler industry. I have been lucky enough to been granted a leave of absence to take part in this event. I studied engineering at Birmingham University England, which i graduated from in 2005.
I guess that gives a brief background about myself. Please feel free to email me to ask me anything else.
Bring on June 2012
