Mountain biking & cyclo-cross great Nick Craig is giving a lecture at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival on Friday 18th February.
Scott bikes tech rep Nick Craig is a multiple national champion in both mountain biking and cyclocross and has represented Great Britain in the Olympics both on and off-road. He has won the iconic Three Peaks Cyclo-cross twice.
Nick will be interviewed on stage by adventure sports writer & endurance athlete, Nik Cook, about his career in cycling, the sport in general, technique and training tips and cool kit in development. It’ll be informal, relaxed and with plenty of scope for audience participation and questions. Supported by Silva, there will be plenty of prizes to give away on the night.
Nik Cook from Chinley says: “This is a rare opportunity to get a personal insight into the career of one of Britain’s most versatile and successful cyclists both on and off the road. Nick will give the inside track on what it’s like to ride in the Olympics, the halcyon early days of mountain biking and why cycle touring is his true love.”
