I was a bit nervous about asking people to spend their hard earned cash on a kid’s bike they may only ever race four times, but I needn’t have been. Like the wheels, the cost is very small and like the us, the fun is very large. The arbitrary set of rules I can up with were:
- Wheels must be no larger than 16”
- The frame must be designed for 16” or smaller wheels
- Bike modification is encouraged and may be rewarded.
- The races shall remain secret until just before the event
The Trans-Provence is one of the most mental bike races around. A week of amazing riding and adventure. Ash has just fired over this appeal… they’re looking for a couple of people to work the week of the race… are you free???
Unfortunately, two of our camp & logistics team for the upcoming Mavic Trans-Provence have had to drop out, leaving us to seek two new staff members.
Younger people and students are welcome and I would generally be very willing to be a referee on a young person’s CV (plus TP could be a pretty interesting thing for someone aspiring for a role in project management to experience first hand, all the more if they’re into MTB). Older-than-student people welcome too. One of the jobs requires driving a pretty big panel van.
Help would be needed from Wednesday 17/09 until Saturday 27/09 (although 20/09 – 27/09 *might* work). It’s a tough week and a bit, but it’s a brilliant team to work on, and getting to meet and work for some of the best riders on the planet is pretty cool.
There is compensation but nobody’s going to be retiring off it. I will discuss this individually with those who put themselves forward. I can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance,
Whatever the reason.. Just ride
I’m a bit late on this, but not as late as PinkBike. Our roving sex pest, Duncan, was awarded another POD over on Pinkbike a couple of weeks ago for this shot of sexy beast Swinny. The shot dates back quite a long time but its a classic combination of the skills of both men. Swinny spraying up the dust and Dunc panning the action to perfection.
