Marc Prud’homme

Marc is a long-time friends of the velofix team and we’re happy to have him as an ambassador. He’s an amazing triathlete, with an ever better story of perseverance and dedication. You’ll often find Marc at local events, and volunteering at the velofix van. Be sure to come say hi and meet him. Despite his strong build and competitiveness on race day – you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone as approachable, supportive, and inspirational as Marc.

Marc served Canada as an infantry within the Royal Canadian Regiment for the last 12 year. Although his military career is very important to him, he has the perfect balance between, work, training, friends and family life.

Three years ago, he was lucky enough to survive a bicycle crash that almost took his life. After a successful shoulder reconstructive surgery, and many other difficulties, Marc became stronger and faster than every. He’s looking to qualify for the 2017 World Military Games, the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, Olympic Distance World Championships, and hopes to one day compete at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
