Welcome to another episode of the N+1 Lowlands Cycling podcast.
We are your hosts Geoff and Gerry.
Today we talk with Dave Grant a top level cyclist who traveled to the Netherlands in the early 90’s to live and race his bike over there.
Of course we are very interested in how he ended up in the Netherlands, how it was racing for the Sauna Diana team and what he’s up to nowadays racing Road, Track, Cyclocross, and Mountain Bike, and how he will never do a Zwift race. Dave also discusses how training has changed under Covid 19, what new technology he’s really excited about, and what his goals will be once the racing season returns.
The Sauna Diana team was the very first team who actually had a coach-bus (English Doubledecker bus) for their riders. After the double decker bus they acquired a coach bus which the lent to the TVM pro cycling team during the Tour de France. In those days the pro team didn't have the luxurious coach busses they have today, and the riders had to get changed sitting in the back of the team car.
