Team Sky professionals Alex Dowsett, Mathew Hayman and Christian Knees have been confirmed as appearing in the Gatorade G Series Pro Theatre at the Road Cycling Show at Sandown Park, Surrey, over April 21-22.
The Sky trio will be taking part in expert question and answer sessions in the G Series Pro Theatre throughout the weekend. They will be joined by Richard Davidson, former professor of Exercise Physiology and Nigel Mitchell Head of Nutrition at Team Sky and British Cycling, plus many more.
The theatre schedule – designed in partnership with Cycling Weekly, Cycle Sport and Cycling Active magazines, and co-hosted by Hannah Reynolds (Fitness Editor, Cycling Weekly and Cycling Fitness) – is aimed at providing athletes and coaches a unique mix of presentations, Q&A forums and experiential activities to learn from some the best cycling experts in the world.
Dowsett said: “It’s awesome to be coming down to the Road Cycling Show to speak at their G Series Pro Theatre. It is always great to chat with people who share the love of the sport. Me and the guys are looking forward to meeting and chatting with everybody.”
