My name’s Brendan Canty, and I currently race for Cannondale-Drapac Pro Team. In 2017, I’ll be living mostly in Girona or out of my suitcase, spending my time racing around the globe against the best riders in the world, with the ultimate goal of one day racing in the Tour de France. Having a late introduction into the cycling scene, I’m really excited to think what the future may hold.
As an influencer for Strava, you can follow all of my rides including training and races, plus metrics including heart rate and power data. I’m grateful to see so many people engaging with my training and races. Hopefully you’ll find I’m rather open to discussions. I enjoy replying to comments, and being involved with through all social media channels. If you have anything to ask, please do!
I really enjoy heading out for rides that incorporate a good coffee stop, with either a donut from Hurstbridge bakery, or a slice of the infamous banana bread from Papa Bears in Eltham. Cycling can be both mentally and physically challenging lots of the time. It’s easy to get caught up with training and diet, so I believe it’s always nice to keep things balanced.
Off the bike I’ve studied a bachelor of commerce at the University of Melbourne, and am extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to continue to develop and challenge myself as a casual graduate with Pitcher Partners, working in the private clients division.
When I’m not training, or completing a tax return, you’ll often find me watching grand designs Australia, eating food, or refreshing the strava app (Often all three simultaneously). Other interests include AFL football (Essendon Bombers), gadgets (technology) and Birkenstock sandals. Yes, I am a bit of a geek!
In the near future, I would like to become a qualified coach to help others achieve their goals and ambitions. There’s lots of value that comes with the experience of racing at a professional level, and both the physical and mental processes involved with preparation for a big race.
Ultimately, this blog has been created to allow my family, friends and followers to stay up to date with what I’ve been doing and where I’ve been racing. If you’d like to keep up to date, please make sure you subscribe to this site via email at the bottom of the site.
