What do you get when you put Chris Boardman, David Millar, Alex Dowsett, Rebecca Romero, Dani King and Rob Hayles in the same room? Manchester Bike Expo.

The six stalwarts of British cycling have seven Olympic medals and 14 Grand Tour wins between them and are speaking to the audience of the event across the weekend of March 20-22.

Nutrition experts High 5 and Clif Bar are at the exhibition, as are Schwalbe, WattBike and clothing companies including Fat Lad At The Back.

Chris Marshall-Bell

Chris first started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2013 on work experience and has since become a regular name in the magazine and on the website. Reporting from races, long interviews with riders from the peloton and riding features drive his love of writing about all things two wheels.

Probably a bit too obsessed with mountains, he was previously found playing and guiding in the Canadian Rockies, and now mostly lives in the Val d’Aran in the Spanish Pyrenees where he’s a ski instructor in the winter and cycling guide in the summer. He almost certainly holds the record for the most number of interviews conducted from snowy mountains.
