Antonio has been a student of triathlon for over 12 years. Not satisfied with just participating in the sport, Antonio immersed himself in all things related to swimming, biking, and running. While studying at Boise State University, he founded their Triathlon Club and worked at a local bicycle shop. Interested in triathlon bike fitting from the beginning, he perfected his bicycle fitting knowledge by relocating to Detroit to work side-by-side with one of the country’s best triathlon bike fitters. It was also during this time Antonio honed his skills as a bicycle mechanic, eventually serving as a personal mechanic for multiple Tour De France cyclists, an Olympic Medalist, and a host of professional triathletes including Ironman Champions and World Champions. Back in Boise, Antonio was instrumental in developing ‘TriBoise’, a beginners triathlon coaching and training program, and helped run the program for several years. Starting TriTown with Harold helped Antonio realize a goal he had worked towards for over 8 years.
As a competitor, Antonio has won multiple amateur triathlons and duathlons. He is a 4x Age-Group State Champion and has represented Idaho in the ‘Best of the US’ National Champion Series. In the off-season Antonio enjoys competing in cyclocross and nordic skiing events.
