About the speakers
Cycling polymath Mike Cotty is globally recognised as an endurance icon. He has a unique occupation in the cycling world creating pioneering experiences that often see him staring at the face of adversity. This year he cycled 1,000 kilometres non-stop over the most challenging terrain in the Alps, battling sleep deprivation and forcing exhaustion aside. Mike knows how to set and beat goals and he has mastered his bodies' physical ability, he understands that the lessons he has learnt on the bike have a wider meaning in life and that there's no substitute for plain hard work.
Garth Kruger knows cycling and knows bike fit. It has been his life for two decades and when he arrives at work, he can be sure that he is going to significantly enhance his customers’ cycling experience. He is the owner of Vankru Cycling and is a renowned Retul Master bike fitter. He uses his vast knowledge of cycling to make sure people get the most out of their bikes and themselves.
Student cyclist Liam Glen spent three years racing and winning in the UK before making the decision to pause his studies and race full time in Flanders, thanks to the recognition and support of the Dave Rayner Fund. The “promised land” for any aspiring cyclist gave Liam some glorious memories, but the mud and rain-soaked cobbled-path that he chose dealt both broken moral and broken bones through a season he will never forget.
SURC looks forward to welcoming you on Thursday November 6th at the University’s Avenue campus. Ample free parking is available on site.
