Ride with Team Ineos’ Cameron Wurf

Sit in and learn how the Ineos rider balances his Ironman training with racing for one of the top teams in the pro peloton.

This Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. EST, come ride and chat with Team Ineos’ Cam Wurf on the VeloNews Ride presented by Amp Human on Zwift.

Wurf came to pro cycling through a circuitous route in which he raced at the Athens Olympics, representing Australia in rowing in the men’s lightweight double sculls.

Pivoting to cycling, Wurf was picked up by Cannondale in 2011 and raced alongside Ivan Basso, Ted King, and Peter Sagan. The Australian has raced in the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a España.

In 2015, Wurf dove into long-course triathlon, turning pro the following year. He set the bike course record at the Ironman world championships in Kona in 2018.

Working with Team Ineos during the early part of the 2020 season, Wurf is still keeping triathlon as his primary racing focus, hoping to improve his fifth-place finish from 2019.

Wurf recently spoke with Triathlete about the decrease in the use of performance enhancers at the pro level, how talented his competition is, and how he balances family life with racing.
