VeloVeritas caught up with Evan Oliphant recently to chat about his and his team’s very successful racing trip to the states, here’s what Ev had to say about it.
Why were Plowman Craven in the US, Evan?
“There was no racing in the UK, the Archer was cancelled due to lack of police cooperation and there was another race near London where we got our entries returned because the organiser thought we’d dominate the race. As it happened, we saw the results and Rapha rode it! Plowman Craven have offices in LA; that’s a factor, but probably the main thing is that Tony Gibb’s girlfriend works for BA and got us a great deal on the air tickets!”
