Mike Tindall MBE, former English rugby captain and World Cup winner, will participate in the 2015 Quad together with Rory Lawson, former Scottish international rugby union player.
Chemmy Alcott, Britain’s number one female alpine skier, will participate in the 2015 Quad, together with Dougie Crawford, Britain’s fastest male skier, who is also her husband.
This month, we caught up with them to see how their bike training was going:
“I have been doing as much training as I can - every day I do something different - basic jogging, swimming in Hampton lido or biking. A week or so ago I had a great 3.5hour 48 mile cycle, probably slightly aggressive for my first big ride, but I enjoyed it!”
“My training is varying so can be four times a week or maybe just a couple and the weather is a challenge as nobody wants to ride in the rain! I was lucky enough to get a bit of a practice ride with the big man himself, Rob Wainwright down in Gloucestershire. I do enjoy bike training, that and swimming are my favourite. Running is not my thing so is definitely going to be the biggest challenge!”
