Dads of DIRT: The Series
Our next is Australian Tully Lyster.
“We operate 7 McDonalds Restaurants around our area employing 750 people. I have been in the McDonalds system for 25 years.
We live in Wangaratta in North East Victoria, Australia which is close to local wineries and the snow fields with Mount Hotham and Falls Creek an hour away. I am happily married to wife Michelle with 3 beautiful children – Kai now 14, Levi 12, Eva 7.
For 8 years I dabbled in triathlon completing 7 Ironman including Hawaii with my best time 9hrs 6min. I only started cycling at age 25, so have enjoyed riding/racing post my triathlon days. In cycling, I won the Australian Veterans Cycling Championships Road Race and came Runner-Up in the TT
Team DIRT appealed to me as I can relate to all Dads doing their best to balance work, family and their personal goals. I have found that we all need to set ourselves a goal/challenge to strive for. I hope I can add value to the DIRT community and assist some dads. Riding in Zwift allows me windows of opportunity to have a race in a fun environment if I can’t get out on the road for 3-4 hours. This wonderful team allows us to network from all different sides of the world – Ride On”
