Every month we meet a different member of the LCRC who gives details about their past and future cycling!
This month: Danny Stevens, Past and Future Star!
1.WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT IN A RIDE / RACE?
My favourite ever moment on a bike has to be one of two. Riding in any National Hill Climb champs is a massive rush. The crowds are always enormous compared to my usual races. The most memorable one was on The Rake, a short climb of little over 2 minutes but brutally steep. There's a railing up the side of the road it's that bad! I remember being on the floor for a good 10 minutes after the race unable to stand up.
My other favourite ride was recently in Italy we got the chance to ride with Daniel Teklehaimanot. He was such a gentleman and a classy rider. A memory I'll never forget and a quality day.
2.WHAT IS THE FAVOURITE BIKE YOU HAVE RIDDEN?
My favourite bike has to be my Canyon Aeroad CF SLX that I race on right now. It is perfect. Everything black, aero, SRAM red 22, zipp 303 tubular wheels. I wouldn't change to any other bike even if you offered.
3.WHO IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE RIDER AND WHY?
My all time favourite rider has to be Lance Armstrong Insert gasps. Yes I know I know he doped but they all did back then and he was still an abolsute killer bike rider. He's responsible for getting me into cycling along with my dad back in the mid 00's and watching him battle up the mountains was always great fun during the summer. I don't think I'd be cycling today if it weren't for him.
4.WHAT ARE YOUR CYCLING HOPES FOR 2018?
My goals for this year is to maintain my 2nd cat status with British Cycling and also try and win a race again ideally on a more 'sporting' course and not an 80 man sprint on Pimbo. A cheeky little side goal is to keep the skinny climbers off my back for another year at the club hill climb champs up the Shoe yet again this October.
