“The Shepparton community have played a major role in my triathlon career and the love of the sport. It was one of my first ever triathlons, racing against Olympian Simon Thompson, to holding the course record for so many years and winning Challenge Shepparton last year. The memories range from racing, supporting and watching the iconic triathlon. The Shepparton event is one that is truly a part of Victorian triathlon history and tradition.” – Luke Bell 2015
