Irwin Mitchell has sponsored an up and coming cyclist, to enable
him to join double Olympian Dani King for a once-in-a-lifetime
track day experience at Lee Valley Velo Park, London.
Joe Hiscott, 16, attends Bristol Grammar School and in order for him to continue his
training at Newport Velodrome, Irwin Mitchell’s Bristol office have sponsored Joe’s
equipment and kit.
Jonathan Peacock, Regional Managing Partner for the Bristol office, bid for this great
opportunity for Joe at an auction organised by Headway. The auction, which was
hosted by former Antique’s Roadshow presenter Eric Knowles, was held as part of
the charity’s national Annual Awards Luncheon in December 2014 at The Dorchester
Hotel in London.
Jonathan commented: “This was a great opportunity for Joe to meet Dani and get
some advice on what it takes to be an Olympic standard cyclist who’s one of the
most successful in the world. Joe really enjoyed the track day and it only inspired him
to work even harder to achieve his goals.
“Cycling has increasingly attracted more and more fans since the British team’s
success at the London 2012 Olympics and the highly successful Grand Depart hosted
by Yorkshire in 2014.
“We hope that our continuing sponsorship of Joe, a very talented and committed
up-and-coming cyclist, will support him in his future endeavours as he pushes to
achieve great things.”
Jode added: “It was a fantastic experience for me to meet Dani, she has achieved so much and she is an inspiration to me – it was an amazing day with her and I feel like I learnt a lot."
