Carolina Triathlon is built upon the belief that there is value to the athlete in being able to go to one shop and get everything you need for the sports of running, cycling, swimming, and doing triathlons.
I own Carolina Triathlon and I am a triathlete. I use the stuff we sell every day of the year. Triathlon has been one of the cornerstones of my life for seven years. Every week, I am a runner, a cyclist, and a swimmer. The store is committed to being the place you want to go to get the information, advice, and products you use in your daily sweat.
I did my first Ironman in Florida in 2003 and just recently completed Ironman Chattanooga in Sept. 2014. I've also completed several Half Ironmans as well as a few dozen Sprint and Olympic distance races. Our store is the one I wish had existed when I began doing tris years ago, when I still thought a brick was a building material.
Carolina Triathlon is a sponsor for the local triathlon club- the Upstate Triathlon Club. We also sponsor a number of local races and events, including the Freedom Rings races on September 11, the downtown 5K race, the Greenville Half Marathon in late October, the Tri to Cure kid’s triathlon in August and tons of other events.
All members of the Upstate Triathlon Club, the Greenville Spinners, the Freewheelers of Spartanburg and the Greenville Track Club, receive membership discounts at our store. In addition, we sponsor the Donna Pedala Women's Cycling Team and the Go-GreenEvents.com Cycling Team.

Trey is the friendly face (with the great beard) that you'll likely see when you enter the store. He's as energetic as he is kind and ready to help anyone find their perfect bike. If you need help with anything from accessories, to clothing, to bikes, he's your guy!
Bryan is our lead mechanic and has been in the industry for many years. He lived in CO for a few years and eventually brought his climbing legs and lungs to Greenville, SC.

Tonya is our 'Accounts Payable', 'Human Resources', and 'Ordering' department, all rolled into one. Tonya has been working for us for quite some time, and is an excellent runner and cyclist. If you ever special order something from us, there is a good chance Tonya was the one responsible for getting it to you!
Mike is our newest face in the store, but don't let that fool you, this guy knows bikes! He's been in this industry for several years and knows the sport, the Specialized brand, and how to make you faster! He's really into riding bikes and racing cars, so if you're looking to talk about either of those things, you'll be in good hands!
Alex is a student at J.L. Mann and a member of their cross country team. He also competes in local triathlon events and races his Specialized Stumpjumper mountain bike in the South Eastern Regional Championship. You'll find Alex to be very knowledgable and helpful.
