Name: Cooper Sayers
Role: Mechanic and Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: Some of the experience that I have had has included working in various bike shops as both a salesperson and road bike mechanic. I have also done a lot with servicing and bike maintenance. I have also worked at many expos and event stalls promoting sponsors and the institute which has benefited me with my communication skills and knowledge.
Riding Experience: I've been cycling for 3 years now after I was picked up by SASI Talent Search testing where 5000 kids were tested. From there I have represented South Australia and now ride for the South Australian Sports Institute Track and Road Endurance Squad.

Name: John Martinez
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: Worked as a Lifeguard for 6 years specialising in customer service where I was granted the position of duty manager to eventually finding my passion at 99 Bikes.
Riding Experience: I've been riding bikes as long as i can remeber, but got into road cycling since i was 13 through triathlon where my love for bikes just grew. I still compete in triathlons now and then as well as road races, with an unhealthy obsession for strava. Also in my spare time I do ride my mountain bike every now and then.
What do you love about bikes?: I love where it can take you, just waking up in the morning and thinking 'where do I want to ride today?' The sense of adventure from exploring new roads and trails by bike is one of the best feelings and I hope that I continue doing this for a long time.
Expertise: Road and triathlon.
Current Bikes: Specialized S-Works Venge (road), Fuji Norcom Straight 1.1 (time trial), Merida Big 9 (mountain bike).
Favourite Ride: Has got to be Norton Summit easily, but loved riding in Halls Gap through the Grampians.
Name: Graham Plowright
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: 15 years working in the automotive industry in customer relations and sales as well as spare parts and service roles. Over the past 6 or 7 years I have worked as a cycle tour guide in Italy and during the Australian summer worked in the retail cycling industry in Sydney.
Riding Experience: 25+ years road riding and racing both nationally and internationally. Although I no longer race I still continue to travel to Europe, particularly Tuscany to ride my bike & enjoy the food & wine that Italy has to offer.
What do you love about bikes?: I do love the social aspect of cycling but mostly I enjoy the solitude when riding alone and getting lost in your own thoughts. I love nothing more than finding the hardest ride possible and testing myself to my limits still after all these years on the bike. I also love riding hard with my mates & challenging one another.
Expertise: Road cycling. I also pride myself on my knowledge of cycling history.
Current Bikes: Formigli FGR custom carbon with Dura Ace and Colnago C59 150th Anniversary. I also have an epic collection of classic 90's road bikes including Bianchi, Pinarello, Colnago, Tommasini and Look to name but a few. I'm a cycling tragic and may just have a problem.
Favourite Ride: Actually my favourite and ultimate place to ride is in the Chianti hills just north of Siena in Tuscany Italy. I am new to Adelaide so am still working on my favourite ride in these parts. The whole area is an amazing place to ride. Since arriving from Sydney in early 2017 I have been enjoying myself in the Adelaide Hills around Montacute, Norton summit & Mt Lofty.
