Every month we meet a different member of the LCRC who gives details about their past and future cycling!
This month: Damian Field: Sometime Racer and Cycling Parent!
1.WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT IN A RIDE / RACE?
A few years ago, one evening at the Manchester Track League I experienced the elusive ‘state of grace’ & managed to win the scratch, points, devil & sprint races. I should’ve quit there & then!
2.WHAT IS THE FAVOURITE BIKE YOU HAVE RIDDEN?
Hopefully it will be my new one that I’m about to build up from FiftyOne Bikes. But the favourite I’ve actually ridden would have to be the Monoc road bike I raced on in 2000. It was quite an extreme compact frame at the time when Giant had recently brought theirs out, so they were pretty rare. A real head turner.
3.WHO IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVOURITE RIDER AND WHY?
For me it has to be a rider that was at his peak when I first got into cycling. In those days cycling was truly a Cinderella sport & probably considered a bit unusual. This guy was an unusual rider in an unusual sport. He was definitely a lone wolf & didn’t suffer fools gladly. It’s Robert Millar.
4.WHAT ARE YOUR CYCLING HOPES FOR THE REST OF 2018 and 2019?
I2018 has been a bit of a washout for me racing wise as I’ve been taking Evie to races. Every year since 2006 I’ve been saying this is the comeback year. The only way I’m going to be able to race in 2019 is if ride the senior races after Evie has ridden. This means.....Litherland! However, I do have some unfinished business with the Duo Normand TTT.
