In the latest episode of Adam Blythe Interviews, the Lotto-Soudal professional meets Tim Harris, a former rider and mentor to many riders.
Harris was the British road race champion in 1989 and enjoyed a long career with British, Dutch, Belgian, French and Portuguese teams. Now based in Belgium, he looks after young riders who dream of turning pro – and 12 years ago, one of these young hopefuls was Blythe.
The pair recount their inauspicious first meeting and Blythe's early experiences of racing in Belgium, as well as Harris's own career.
