My name is Tristan Baird, I grew up on the opposite side of the Wellsvilles from ENVE HQ in Smithfield. I began my racing career when I was 14 years old by signing up for Lotoja. I raced Lotoja solo from the time I was 14 until the time I was 17. Also during that time I moved up the ranks and found myself on multiple Lotoja category specific podiums. I also was a high school state swimmer and branched out into triathlons during the later part of high school. My senior year I raced the Half Ironman US Pro Championships in St. George, Utah and was the youngest athlete in the whole race by 5 years. After competing in such grueling racing events, I took a break from cycling to serve as a volunteer in South Korea, study at BYU, and study in Hong Kong. I have since returned to racing and in my first season back joined the 1000 mile club at Lotoja along with a 2nd place podium finish in Cat 5 with a time of 9:18:12. For the 2022 season I competed at Crusher in the Tushar, Lotoja, and Austin Rattler. My target races for the upcoming 2023 season are the Leadville 100, Lotoja, Crusher in the Tushar, and the Wasatch All Road.
