Domonic Thompson

What is your nickname? 
I actually don’t have one… Am I missing out?

Where do you work and what is your role? 
I’ve worked for Macquarie Bank for more than 11 years and I am currently State Head of Sales for Business Banking Qld.\

How long have you been cycling?
About two months, so I’m perfectly qualified for a 600 kilometre tour of Tasmania right?

What inspired you to sign up for a Smiling for Smiddy event? 
Mark ‘Hollywood’ Trayner represented Macquarie last year with another colleague and we’re keen to build out our involvement with Smiling for Smiddy so we committed to a bigger team this year.

What does it mean to you to raise money for cancer research?
Cancer affects everyone; we all have personal stories of family/friends/loved ones who have been impacted. The sooner we can eradicate this dreadful disease, the better the world will be.

How do you plan to fundraise? 
At the moment it’s simply persistence (bordering on harassment) but the initiatives will likely become more random and varied as the event gets closer.

What’s your favourite post-ride beverage? 
Water—gotta hydrate! Once hydrated though I’d drink almost anything served cold at the local watering hole.

Do you have any rituals or superstitions before you go for a ride? 
None yet … but I’m open to any suggestions that will help.
