Guy is near the top of the result list on a regular basis in a range of different cycling events, recently gaining 6th place in The Pioneer 7 day MTB stage race in 2017 and is part of the L & M Ricoh cycling team that will be lining up again this year for the Tour of Southland.

 

 

See what he has to say about out new cycling orthotics:

 

“Gareth has increased my cycling comfort with new personalised foot beds to support the natural position of my foot. It is very important to be comfortable on the bike when you are racing 7 day stage races for any where from 4 – 7 hours a day. Also the foot is the primary point of contact therefore it is important your power is efficiently transferred to the bike. Gareth has professionally and efficiently fitted me to my new orthotics and comes highly recommended for any cyclist of any level as every athlete is after comfort and marginal gains!”
