Graham Kemp – National 24 Hour TT Champion 2019

"I just love riding my bike so didn’t have any bad spells. The race felt like five minutes, very weird!"


Men’s British time trial record holders? VeloVeritas has interviewed them all, granted Marcin Bialoblocki has five of them; 10, 15, 25, 50 and 100 – but we’ve also spoken to 30 mile record holder Stuart Travis and 12 hour record holder, Adam Duggleby. The one omission was the 24 hour; but we’ve sorted that out by speaking to Graham Kemp (Team Bottrill) who recorded 544.32 miles to win the national 24 hour championship, eclipsing Andy Wilkinson’s 2011 total of 541.17 miles.

Here’s what Graham had to say to us recently:

Congratulations Graham, the basics first – where are you from, how old are you, do you have a family and what’s your profession?

“I was born in North Wales and currently live in Ewloe with my wife Carolyn and two lovely daughters Isobel and Holly.

“Upon leaving school I took up an apprenticeship in Airbus and have now been there for over 20 years, I’m 40 years of age, this year.
