Dan Fleeman – New MTB Team; Forme Coaching-Pactimo-Cannondale

-

I remember the first time I met Dan Fleeman; 2007 in the days before Twitter, The Shack, LanceGate, the slick marketing of the ‘Flanders Classics’ and the World Tour. Vik still used to go to pro races; before he was too badly scarred by the World Tour – the Tour of Beijing was the last nail in the coffin.

We were driving down the North Sea coast road to drink pils, eat frites and pester riders and – even more so – mechanics at the Three Days of De Panne.

A skinny guy in DFL kit hove into view; ‘it’s that laddie Fleeman!’ hollered Vik; ‘stop him!’ Poor Fleeman was almost run off the road as we blasted the horn and hung out the window.
