Director, Head Coach, Retül University Lead Faculty
Nick is the director of RIDEFAST. He is a Level 2 Cycling coach with a background in fitness and lifestyle coaching after having completed a Diploma of Exercise Science. He has 25 years of experience within the sport as both an athlete and a coach. He was selected to represent Malta in the 2006 Commonwealth Games which shows the high level of commitment, dedication and skill.
Nick is currently contracted to the Queensland Academy of Sport as an Assistant Cycling Coach. He was awarded the 2009 and 2016 Coach of the Year by the Cycling Queensland Association after being recognised for successfully training athletes to State, National and World Championship level. His greatest satisfaction comes from athletes reaching their absolute potential. He aims high but also has that distinctive quality that empowers others to find and maximise their own potential.
His greatest inspiration comes from his parents Manny and Mary Formosa who moved to Australia from Malta with no money, for a better life for their children. Nick loves what he does and his enthusiasm and dedication is contagious.
Business Development Manager
Craig Briant is the business development manager at RIDEFAST, which means he looks after the identification and implementation of business efficiencies, generation of business opportunities, and liaison with clients to ensure their RIDEFAST experience is positive.
He works closely with Nick to ensure the very best client experience possible. Craig has always been an enthusiastic rider and he has raced competitively since the year 2000. He is currently at level Masters A in Queensland bike racing and he has achieved impressive results in numerous races, including the Australian Masters Road Championships.
He enjoys riding recreationally and competitively, being involved in the community and sporting enterprises, and participating in teams that are driven to success.
After working with major financial institutions, Craig established his own financial planning practice, later merging with another practice and acquiring two additional financial planning practices to create a business that is of mid-tier size in the industry.
Craig counts the greatest achievement of his career as becoming self-employed, undertaking a challenging, but exciting, journey to become his own entity. Highly organised and flexible, he brings loyalty, commitment and generosity to the RIDEFAST team.
