We have formed partnerships with some great organisations to help our members get the best products and information needed to excel in triathlon

Triathlon Victoria Incorporated (TriVic) is the governing body for the sports of Triathlon, Duathlon and Aquathlon in Victoria. TriVic works closely with Triathlon Australia - the National Governing Body - to ensure the responsible development of the sport at a State and National level. Joining TriVic is easy and has some awesome benefits. Besides reduced membership fees for MTC people, TriVic offers the following benefits for the active athlete: Australian race license (for elite racing), reduced entry fees for events, place recognition in State & National titles, Athlete insurance (one of the best benefits), Australian team selection eligibility and regular updates from TriVic.

Fluid Movements Sports are the Coaching Partner for MTC. They work with every athlete individually to tailor a program that suits their needs and goal. There are options available to train in the squad or via correspondence training and they cater to every level of athlete. The coaching environment they provide goes well beyond swim, bike and run training. We are very proud of the culture that we have within our squad/club. Its most evident when you see how supportive everyone is of each other as team mates and friends. We spend a lot of time together, so the positive environment of our training is very important, and something we continue to nurture and strengthen. Fluid's experienced coaches are athletes themselves which enables us to best develop training plans that compliment an athlete’s life outside of the training program. MTC and Fluid have a strong partnership. If you are on an individual training program with Fluid Movements you are entitled to a $20 discount off your MTC annual membership fee!

Pure Steel Original (Jan Dean) You will see Jan front and centre at most races supporting our crew and spends hours capturing awesome photos of our Club members. The majority of images you'll see on this website have been captured by Jan. Here's what she says about her work for Pure Steel Original: I take my photography in a slightly different direction by putting my edge on seemingly common sights. I have a sense of mood, context, contrast and love to create individual moments. I resist editing my images and rely on capturing the special moment with minimal modifications. I hope you can appreciate the Pure essence of my Original images. Click here to see some of her work

It's about enjoying time out on the road but unfortunately for most people the weeks are busy and the lucky ones might sneak in one ride! The reality is lots of traffic and hazards to look out for which detracts from any sort of focused training. At Cycle Collective although everyone in the class is riding to the same music and doing the same class, you work to your own threshold, so it's a group class but an individual solution. This is done using a "Watt zone card" system so when an instructor asks you to hit certain zones, what you’re doing may be completely different to the person next to you, yet everyone in the class is doing exactly what they have been asked to do. After the class if you have set up a "stats" account you can view your class performance and upload your data to Garmin or Strava. By doing 2 sessions a week and riding outside on the weekend anyone can increase their performance by up to 15% over 10 weeks. Different classes are on offer and be assured there are classes to suit everyone, if you are not sure try a free intro class which will be sure to enlighten you! Cycle Collective offers 20% off classes for MTC members, please contact the MTC committee for the discount code
