Annette Edmondson (born 12 December 1991 in Adelaide) is an Australian cyclist who races on the track, and on the road as part of WiggleHigh5 professional women’s road cycling team.
Annette won gold medals in both the Omnium and Team Pursuit at the 2015 Track World Championships in France. She won gold and silver medals at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow alongside her younger brother Alex and also competed at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics where she won bronze in the women’s omnium (2012).
I’ve always had a love for the outdoors and sports. During my early days I took part in a range of sports, none of which caught my immediate attention. I knew almost instantaneously that triathlon was the sport for me. I was drawn to the individuality, mental toughness and the sense of personal accomplishment that it gave me. I have had much success over the past few years.
Across all three sports, I have found that I have an intrinsic love and desire for the demands of endurance and the ability to push oneself. I love what the sport of triathlon brings me each day, the people that it allows me to meet, and the places that it can take oneself. It is important to set yourself big goals and to aim high. Looking toward the future, I have big aspirations that I wish to fulfil, and I believe with the support of KOM Financial Advice that anything is possible.
I started work as a financial planner in the '90's and realised very quickly the impact of good and bad advice.
How do you give good advice? Listen, concentrate on goals because strategies only matter if they achieve the goals and always treat clients like they are a member of your family.
If you could sum me up in one word I'd want it to be integrity

In 2017, Nero Racing Team Edition enjoyed a surprisingly successful debut year in the National Road Series (NRS). The goal was to build a community team; one that sought to develop an interest in domestic racing, get more people on their bikes and provided access to the secret world of ‘elite’ riding in Australia. And also to win some races if we could.
Last year, we aimed to put our kits on the start line. This year we will be doing so with our co-name sponsor (and one of the most established cycling supporters in the country) King of the Mountain Financial Advice.

An advertisement placed in the Jewish News in early 1990 by Steve Deneberg was the catalyst for the formation of the Maccabi Triathlon Club, which held its first race - a duathlon - in Centennial Park in May of that year. Paul Stone, a member of the committee which put on Sydney’s first ever triathlon, at Narrabeen in February 1982, become the first President of the club - a position he was to hold for 10 years.
From these tentative beginnings, the club soon made its mark on Jewish sport.

My passion for competitive sport was nurtured from a young age playing handball and tennis, and my love for speed and adrenaline cultivated from my university days rock-climbing and white-water kayaking.
I picked up cycling in early 2011 after being introduced to crit-racing. It was the opportunity to rub shoulders with the stronger and more experienced women at the 2011 SKCC Club Criterium championships that inspired me to start training. Through the support of the SKCC Women’s Development Squad, I started road-racing and continued to learn and grow as a cyclist. In the later half of 2011, I took up track cycling and racing, and certainly enjoy the different challenges and elements that both these disciplines bring.
