Dan Craven – Ten Year Plan


It’s not everyday that we have the African champion racing on Scottish roads so when we met Dan Craven of Rapha/Condor after his fine third place at the recent Drummond Trophy, we thought we’d better make the most of it.

Dan was recently the subject of the ‘big interview’ in Cycling Weekly, so we steered clear of subjects already raised by our chums at ‘The Comic.’

Where’s home, in the UK, Dan?

“A flat in Manchester, it’s in close proximity to John Herety (Rapha/Condor manager) and I share with my team mates, Ben Greenwood and Rob Partridge.”

What do you think of the British weather?

“Everyone is telling me that the weather is good here for the time of year, it’s reasonably similar to what I was used to in Switzerland at this time.

“I have to tell you though; I was petrified at the thought of the British weather before I got here!”

And the food?

“I’m used to English dishes from back home, in Namibia. We share the cooking in the flat and try to make good food for ourselves; it’s not Italian food, but I’m happy so far.”
