Matt Formston (stoker, legally blind cyclist who rides on the back of a tandem) and Mick Curran (pilot, front rider) aka OzTandem, are the formidable world class Australian representative tandem cycle pairing. They are the WORLD RECORD HOLDERS, WORLD CUP GOLD medalist, former WORLD CHAMPIONS and are 10 x Australian National Champions across a staggering 3 disciplines; the Tandem Road Race, Tandem Road Time Trial and the Tandem Pursuit on the track.
The boys are focused on their long term goal of Winning GOLD at the Rio Games in 2016.
They understand this is a momentous goal and have the plan in place to turn it into reality. When they are not out pushing their limits in training on the bike they can be found researching technology, equipment, the competition and any little edge they can get over their competetors. OzTandem have partnered with sponsors who are world leaders in their field as they know they can not reach the top by themselves. Some of their equipment partnerships include, Shimano, Fast Forward Wheels, COBB Saddles and Garmin.
Mick and Matt are also great mates off the bike and can be found surfing their local break at Wamberal or out at a Coffee shop or restaurant with the other half of OzTandem; their wives (Kirrily and Rebecca).
And if after that they still haven’t spent enough time together they also work together in their business “Champion Vision”. Champion Vision is a coaching and consulting business that has a core strength in Keynote Presentations, Motivational Speaking and Collaborative Workshop delivery.
