- Most popular Biker? (who can also talk)
No one here will come up with the right answer without knowing the following;
Target Audience (for the brand), clothes, Personal care, hardware, equipment..?
Target Geographics, it’s no well saying International, as having seen all this second hand (missus was Brand Manager at BIG FMCG)International marketing always has to be geared towards the largest common denominator.
Money – there will be an unrealistically low price coming out of someones budget for this.
Se you’ve also said “like biking”, this to me says you have many more appropriate options to choose from, get some one with some Olympic golds would be my advise.Posted 4 years agomrhoppySubscriber
I’d be looking at someone with either an Olympic reputation (if you get the right one the price isn’t going to be too bad) or one of the expedition climbers. We’ve had some cracking speakers at the local lecture series, best by some distance was Eric Boomer but I think you’ve missed him being here.
If no one knows them, and that covers any mtbers then they need to be really engaging or have a really good story to tell.Posted 4 years agoBig DaveMember
What about Robert Penn (He wrote ‘Its all about the bike’)? I think he talks at all sorts of events and comes across as a pretty interesting fella. Easy to get hold of through Twitter as well and probably a damn sight cheaper that a lot of the big names. Not a racer but has just done a big ride with Freddie Flintoff.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
T-Mo is very articulate and professional (not to mention successful).
And she’s dabbled in other discplines as well as transitioning very well from DH to Enduro – which may offer a useful business message for your clients.
+1 or maybe Kathy Sessler, possibly more interesting as ahe’s made the transition form Racer to Team managment in what is TBH quite a “Male” sport still…Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber
Great rider and seems like a character, but will your audience relate better to somebody who’s got the achievement of being a world champion and/or world cup series winner?
And wouldn’t it be pricey to fly him in from the US? This is in the UK isn;t it?
If you’ve got a blank chequebook, consider Jared Graves too. 4X legend, BMX Olympian, Enduro machine, DH world championship bronze medalist.
Also seems v down to earth from his blogs.Posted 4 years ago
Many thanks again! Quite like the idea of having a team of two or three different characters to show the variety of the sport and have also different roles (inspiring, cray, corporate, success in sport, success in managing). One could then easily do a little podium discussion at the end with questions from the audience etc.Posted 4 years ago
