Bruce played mainly team sports in the past, rugby League, soccer, basketball, motorbke Enduros.
Following a motor bike crash a few years ago where he damaged his shoulder Bruce decided he wanted to have a go at a real sport, so took up multisport with the Coast to Coast in mind.
“I had never been in a kayak or on a road bike, or run further than 10kms in my life, so I knew expert training & advice was going to be key in helping me reach my goal, that’s where Matty came in."
“I really enjoy training with EPC. I have met some great people & improved my sports performance, bring on the next challenge (the one day Coast to Coast).”
