A late starter to competitive sport Ritchie swam once a week and ran with the local athletics club before taking up triathlon at university.
He rose to prominence back in 2013 when he beat a strong field to win Ironman 70.3 UK previously following the ITU Olympic distance circuit.
He has been honing his skills with some of the best coaches in the business over recent years
His swim has been a weakness ultimately dictating his change to the longer distance racing, but it is ever improving and so too his results.
