Heads up! It's time for another Drink at Your Desk Live! This time we'll be chatting to gravel racer and former Tour de France rider Laurens Ten Dam and we'll also be running a competition to win a pair of Sidi gravel shoes worth £370. We'll be live on YouTube from 4.30pm on Friday.
Laurens Ten Dam is a former pro road racer turned gravel rider, so we'll be talking all about that life in the pro peloton and his transition into gravel racing after retiring as a professional. On his website at LiveSlowRideFast, he outlines his philosophy: "Slow down, look around, live in the moment. Enjoy the small things, done well. Less stuff, fewer distractions, less stress. Save your energy for the bike, so you can leave it all on the road.”
It should be an interesting chat and we’d love your questions for Laurens, so if you have anything you’d like to ask, email your questions to info [at] road.cc or just comment below. And don’t forget to tune in! There’s a pair of Sidi gravel shoes worth £370 to be won.
Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
