Cervélo’s Dan Fleeman first came to our attention when he won the 2008 Tour of the Pyrenees; we’ve kept in touch with the 26 year-old Englishman ever since; through Langkawi, Paris — Nice and into the Ardennes classics.
But a bad crash in the Bayern Rundhfart stage race saw him break a wrist and spend longer than he would have liked, off his bike.
But he’s back in action in the Tour of Britain and will be racing right through to Lombardia.
We packed the notebook and camera; bundled Viktor into the car to keep us company and headed for the Scottish Borders on Sunday night — after the T of B stage two – to have a chat with ‘our boy.’
How have the first two stages been, Dan?
