Meet the team

 

 

Jon Burrage - Owner

Jon is co-owner of The Triathlon Shop and has sixteen years of experience racing in triathlons in the Midlands, Cornwall and Bristol areas. Jon is dad to a very active little man called Sebi.

Before triathlon Jon was a national standard javelin thrower before a serious back injury ended his Olympic ambitions. Triathlon has turned out to be the perfect sport for him and he is aware that he represents a lot of people who have come to the sport having been injured in their previous sporting life.

Having moved to Bristol in 2008 Jon saw that there was a real lack of genuine tri shops in the Bristol area despite a thriving triathlon community so in 2011 he decided to leave his job training kids to cycle and start The Triathlon Shop.

Jon Gentle - Store Manager

 

'Jonny G' has 9 years experience of the cycling industry with 5 years of racing under his belt within duathlon and more recently triathlon and ultra running. His energy and enthusiasm for the sport is infectious - powered by love and beans. 
Jon is a certified natural running coach so is the perfect person to talk to if you are interested in a more natural running technique or increasing your miles.
Holly Burrage - Owner

 

Co-owner of The Triathlon Shop, Holly competed in her first tri in 2008. The last couple of seasons have been taken up with knee surgery and rehab not to mention becoming mum to Sebi!

Holly is a sports and remedial massage therapist and being in rehab for knee surgery herself understands all you athletes out there who have suffered from injury. She is also a certified level 2 RockDoc.
