Bio

Finn Askew, or Finn Boy to his mates, is small town kid from NSW who moved to the Gold Coast to chase his dreams. He had a taste of the Nutri-Grain Series last year as a pathway-athlete and raced the best in the Coolangatta Gold. This time however, after a successful Qualification Round, Askew must test himself against the IronMen each and every round.
