James Shaw – Talking Life under Covid-19

No races at the moment and the World of cycle sport has stopped. What do the riders think? We tracked down James Shaw of the Danish Riwal Readynez team to get his lowdown on the lockdown.


Coronavirus, or Covid-19 is the only topic in town right now and if, like me, you can’t imagine life without cycling then it has much to answer for; not to mention the drastic effect it’s having on people across the world. We caught up with professional James Shaw who rides for the Danish Pro Conti Riwal Readynez Cycling Team to ask about how it’s affecting him as a pro with his season just getting into its stride then having the rug pulled from under him.

Although only 23 years-of-age Shaw is an experienced rider who spent two years on the World Tour with Lotto Soudal then a season back in the UK with SwiftCarbon Pro Cycling before ‘bouncing back up’ to Pro Conti. with Riwal Readynez. We spoke to him at his new home in Derbyshire, England’s scenic Peak District.
