Brian Kamstra is a former professional cyclist who raced for UCI Pro Team
Novo Nordisk and was a four-time National Champion in Cross Country
Running. His path to cycling was not a conventional one. He started out with running and was considered one of the best junior runners in the country by winning over 10 National championship medals and competing in the 2011 European Championships. After getting diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, Brian switched to cycling and raced professionally from 2014 to 2021.  “Things go so quickly.  My professional career was over really quickly due to
some medical condition. Most important is to keep it fun and keep it consistent. I forget at one point why I did the sport and lost basically all pleasure and fun in it. It became more of a job. I needed time to find joy
again. “ His best result in cycling was 10th place at the 2017 Tour de Taiwan, but has also competed at 2017, 2018 and 2021 editions of Milano-San Remo, Strade
Bianche, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road, Herald Sun Tour and many more. 
“I’ve seen young athletes I used to coach going to the Olympics, while they
weren’t the most talented ones, they were definitely the most hard-working
ones. Basically, the phrase "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."
