Rob Preston

Resides: Trafalgar, Victoria, Australia
Years with the team: 5

Rob is the father of a dirt-loving 3 year old boy and a newborn girl.  He spent his childhood in much the same way his son is experiencing his.  Family road trips in a campervan is the standard holiday for the Preston’s.  Rob’s parents exposed him to the competitive sport of orienteering while he was still in diapers giving our team a leg up on the competition in the navigation department.  Rob lives in Australia, a 2 hour drive outside of Melbourne.  Maybe one would expect having a child to slow down one’s training, but Rob has been extremely successful at balancing family with training and racing.
