And the year a World Champion raced for howies.

2012;
A year for riding harder.
A year for first Ultra's.

Team howies: Andy Fenn

Andy-Fenn

Another 1 to 5 from the howies pit at Revolution. Team rider Andy Fenn gives us a quick insight into riding.

Andy was an obvious choice for the team with his winning record across track and road disciplines, the most impressive we think is his U23 UCI World Championships Bronze medal win.

Riding in the elite category for Round 2, Andy teamed up with Cav for the Madison TT and joined Jon Mould to help bring howies the Rainbow victory in the 15km scratch last month.

Andy's skipped the winter weather on a training camp in Spain and left us a few words before he disappears off Down Under next month on tour...

1. How did you get started in cycling?
I started mountain biking first, my dad got me into that, but there isnt cycling in the family. When I moved to Welwyn I joined the Welwyn Wheelers, and slowly took it more seriously from there, progressing through the British Cycling Programs.

2. Where do you ride when you just want to ride for fun?
I dont really have a favorite route, as you can get bored of the same thing, but its always more fun when you go out with a good group of people you know to a nice cafe on a easy day.

3. If you could ride in any event in the world, what would it be?
Paris-Roubaix.

4. What do you do to relax before a race?
I just try to keep my mind off the race until its time to get ready. When we were in the camper van you can always have a laugh with the other guys so that helps.

5. What do you like to do off the bike?
Meeting up with friends, going out to eat, and just relaxing. Normal things.

If you've got any other questions for our team, just leave a comment below.

Cardigan's Open Sunday

Pete and Aron have been up to the shop and fitted the Cardigan shop Christmas window in time for the weekend.

And, because it's the last weekend before Christmas, the shop will also be open on Sunday 11-4(ish).

There's lots of bargain knitwear as well as some great sample stuff to be found.

Kate Sutton Exhibition

 

We are very proud to announce that for the next few weeks we will be hosting the work of Kate Sutton in our Staircase Gallery. We have a collection of both screened and digital prints, Christmas cards and Recipe books on display and for sale, perfect for those of you still with some xmas shopping to do.

Kate has collaborated with howies on numerous occasions, you may recall her 'tea, drink of champions' illustration and more recently her 'root veg stew' t shirt.

The pursuit of speed

Andy Fenn & Mark Cavendish ride the Madison TT

It's been a while since our long drive to Manchester for Revolution, but the reminder of a signed rainbow jersey in the office keeps the evening's entertainment at the NCC on our minds.

We arrived to a lot of excitement and from the team atmosphere in the pit, you could tell it was going to be a special night.

Mark Cavendish arrived to join Jon Mould, Andy Fenn and Team howies' future stars, Elli Coster, Amy Hill, Rebecca Hunt, Zac May, Matt Cross and Owen James where the theme for the night would be smiles and speed.

The pace throughout the night was unimaginable - you almost forget they're riding fixed wheeled bikes as they fly over the boards, narrowly dodging the wheel of the bike in front.

Owen comes off

Despite a nasty off in the first boys Scratch, Owen rode on through the night with bruised thighs and hips on display through his Welsh shorts.

Me, Chris & Hazel are running home tonight.

It's going to be dark, cold, windy, and a bit scary when cars pass.

I'll be running at the back, not just because I'm slow - but because I have the rear lights on my bag.

Stay safe, be seen.

Run home.
