Jess Pratt - road cyclist
Brisbane QLD Australia  

Introducing NALAC squad rider Jess Pratt from Brisbane, who has poured her soul into cycling and is one to watch for the future. She boasts an impressive cycling resume but has also earned her place in the team for her unique point of view. She found the sport in an attempt to improve her bike leg of triathlons, but soon realised her passion was in bikes.

Jess competed throughout juniors; on road and track. She is no stranger to hard work and her dedication landed her at the Junior Track nationals multiple times. From there Jess gained momentum and her selection in the Australian Team as an u19, took her half way across the world to Richmond Virgina USA, where she was able to compete at the 2015 UCI World Road Cycling Championships. 


Giving chase was yet another achievement in 2017, claiming the Title of the Oceania u23 road race, bringing selection to join the Australian Senior Development Team that toured Europe for 2 months competing in several women’s world tour races. Jess’ highlight, “winning stage 5 of the tour of Ardeche in France”.


Her latest and greatest achievement was Grafton to Inverell, taking out the Winners Jersey for 2018. We are proud as punch having Jess in our squad and look forward to supporting her on the journey.

 

Hayden Stevens - Endurance Bike-packing

Melbourne VIC Australia

The latest addition to the NALAC squad is Melbourne native Hayden Stevens. A competitive mountain biker and avid climber and hiker, it wasn't until an 8,000km bike tour across Europe that he found the perfect way to combine the two: ultra-endurance bikepacking.

With the Silk Road Mountain Race (a 1,700km slog through remote Kyrgyzstan) firmly in his sights, he spends his free time riding very heavy bikes very long distances up very big hills. He loves every damn second of it.

 

Thomas (Tom) Wynn-Williams - road cyclist 
Brisbane QLD Australia

Standing at 6 foot 5 with legs as long as his name, we are pleased to announce Thomas (Tom) Wynn-Williams as the newest addition to the NALAC Squad. Tom was born a Kiwi, and raised an Aussie with a background ingrained in cycling.  

When he’s not posing for Instagram, you can find him out on the bike with mates or fixing them as a part time mechanic. However don’t be fooled by his grace and beauty, Tom is a keen cyclist who plans to go pro.

Just as he is on the cusp of Instagram fame (@banterwithtom), he assures us he is on a trajectory to cycling stardom. Can we expect to see his name on a Pro team? If Tom believes it, we believe it.
