The latest installment of our Racer Profile features Fiera Race Team newcomer Keegan Brooks. While Keegan is new to FRT, he is not new to racing, or going fast. He is actively involved in the University of Alberta Triathlon Club as the Head Coach, and he recently competed in the Blackfoot 50 km Ultra Marathon where he finished a remarkable 8th overall! Known for his enthusiasm for just about everything, and his love of Jack Layton, Keegan is a great guy to have around, especially on a training ride – if you are fast enough to stay in his draft.
