Throwback Thursday: Singletrack Heroes – Dan Jarvis

by 0

In the wake of Sunday’s weather-afflicted but still awesome World Cup, this week’s Throwback Thursday returns to issue 92 to celebrate a stalwart of Fort William downhill, commentator Dan Jarvis.

Singletrack Heroes: Dan Jarvis.

Our regular look at the unsung heroes of the mountain bike world continues, with commentator, team manager and all-round lovely bloke Dan Jarvis.

Words by Barney.

Dan Jarvis has been a stalwart of mountain biking for quite a long time. His face and – more pertinently – his voice, have been fixtures of various events around the country since the ’90s. He has commentated at some of the biggest events in the mountain bike world, from World Championships and World Cups, to the Commonwealth Games and of course the Olympics – and he’s been a friend to the sport in many other ways too. But how on earth did this happen? And what else has the ever-ebullient Mr Jarvis been up to in the meantime?
