We’ve been following the rise of Team UK Youth cyclist James Lowsley-Williams for a while and were delighted to see James getting even more recognition with a mention in leading Cycling publication Cycling News.
We last caught up with Superdry-sponsored James back in February after a vigorous three week training camp in Florida. It’s great to see how far he has come in such a short time and how his career is progressing. Merging talent, hard work and some legendary mentors (Magnus Backstedt and former Formula One World Champion Nigel Mansell), James is now part of Team UK Youth, and, as he explains to Cycling News, plans on working his way up the team pecking order.
And not wanting to let James get away without talking telling us a little more about him, we asked him a few quick-fire questions, with Twitter-like answers of 140 characters or less. (We are a Social Media team after all!)
Are you a street shopper or and online buyer?
I shop on the street as I like trying clothes on.
What’s your essential item of clothing?
Living in England, a good hoodie or nice jacket.
What has been your proudest career highlight
Probably coming in the top 5 in the National Track Championships competing with Olympic and World Champions.
What’s your favourite mobile app?
You can’t go wrong with angry birds when you do a lot of travelling. It’s a great time killer.
What are you looking forward to over the next six months?
The hot weather training camps and the forthcoming big races abroad. 2013 is going to be a great year. I cant wait!
What’s your typical day-off outfit?
Some good Superdry joggers and a T-shirt (comfy and relaxing).
Who is your hero?
My grandfather. He really is amazing and he wants me to ride the Tour de France so he can get a Winnebago and follow; visiting all the nice restaurants.
That’s all for now, but thanks James. We’re looking forward to catching up later on in 2013!
