Rapha Talk: Off the Record
A young Dean Downing riding at the track
Last night 30 of Rapha's top customers were treated to an intimate question and answer session with Rapha Condor pros, Dean Downing and Chris Newton plus team manager, John Herety. Cycling commentator David Harmon was there to field questions and ask a few of his own about life inside the peloton.
Held at the Covent Garden Hotel, the talk was a fascinating discussion including insights into Chris' first race as a 13 year old, Dean's long family history of bike racers, John Herety's exploits racing in the Eastern Bloc, being a lonely amateur in Belgium, the state of British cycling and lots of juicy stuff we can't mention here. There were also plenty of jibes and jokes, including ones about Mr. Herety's hair (or lack of).
