Fraser Martin – On Board with Raleigh as Third Scot for 2016

-

Evan Oliphant’s going to have not one but two new chums to chat to at Raleigh for season 2016.

We’ve already spoken to Aberdeen’s Craig Wallace and now it’s time for Perth man Fraser Martin – who also pulls on the jersey with the famous name – to give us his story.

How old are you, where do you live and how did you get into cycling, Fraser?

“I am 19 years-old and I live in Edinburgh (term time) and Perth (during the summer). I started cycling because my Dad was cycling recreationally and I asked if I could go along with him.

“I then joined my local club and I caught “the bug!”

“My Dad, a few friends and I went to Oudenaarde one year to ride the Tour of Flanders sportif and watch the race the following day.

“I remember watching the finish in a little café with all the Belgian fans and it cemented it in my brain that cycling was the sport for me.”
