Ambassadors

Lisa Balerna

Lisa Balerna

Lisa is our local hero! You can catch her on the local duathlon scene, the SJAM parkway, or in Gatineau Park. A regular on the Somersault series as an athlete and a volunteer, Lisa is first to lend a hand and often first in her age group. She’s consistently top female in the Championship Series and even placed 3rd in her age group at World Duathlon Championships a few years ago.

Lisa was our very first ambassador and we’re happy to have her on the team for our 3rd consecutive year!

Marc Prud'homme

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.

Adam Kourakis

Adam Kourakis is a long time bike-guy and cycling enthusiast. When he’s not wrenching, he’s out riding, doing local races, touring, or kicking back and surfing his favorite cycling websites. A familiar face to anyone who cycles in the East end, down Frank Kenny Road, or along the Parkway, Adam is a proven professional.

With this experience and intoxicating enthusiasm, you’ll look forward to every visit from velofix Ottawa. As a Kinesiology graduate, Shimano Certified Technician, Trek Ninja, Winterborne Certified Pro Mechanic, and customer service specialist – Adam has all the tools needed to get you back on your bike.

Sean

Sean

Hailing from England, Sean spent the better part of two decades chasing winter across hemispheres, ultimately splitting his time between British Columbia and Australia as a professional ski instructor, before arriving in Ottawa in 2009. Shifting gears to a single winter season meant an opportunity to sink his teeth into an off-snow sport, and cycling was a perfect match. Soon, Gatineau Park was a year-round playground. It wasn’t long before he was working on his wife’s tri rig, their other bikes and wrenching for friends, ultimately becoming a Winterbourne Certified Professional Bicycle Mechanic,

 

Years teaching the love of skiing has helped Sean hone his excellent customer service skills, which make him a welcome addition to the velofix Ottawa Team.

Adam was so professional! He showed me what he was doing, and took the time to explain it. I loved it because I’m not at all familiar with bike mechanics, so it was a learning experience too! Adam’s passion for bikes really shined!
