LOCKDOWN! With George Mills-Keeling (Ribble Weldtite)

RELATEDShropshire’s George Mills-Keeling has signed for Ribble Pro Cycling for 2020 and we have a Q&A with the junior was second overall in the Junior Tour of Wales 


In the latest Lockdown! quiz, we question George Mills-Keeling (Ribble Weldtite) who was a full time student at his local sixth form before COVID-19 struck.

Q. Your last race was and how did it go for you?
George: My last race in theory was on Zwift, the 3R Spring Reloaded Series round 2. On the road it was the Roy Thame Cup. I had crashed the week before and badly sprained my wrist so I didn’t do so great.

Q. With racing cancelled, what’s a typical week training wise for you?
George: Turbo, turbo, turbo, with a little bit of road at the weekend. In terms of intensity I’m pretty much just either riding easy or races on zwift which are basically zone 4-6 random effort sessions.

Q. If on the turbo, what’s your favourite distraction – Zwift or some other entertainment?
George: Zwift for sure. I have rode on there since 2015 through my dad’s account. For me, it makes turbo enjoyable even on the hardest sessions!

Q. What’s the hardest thing for you about the Lock Down
George: Not being able to see family who I don’t live with and not being able to go for food and drink out. I’m really craving a proper good fish and chips.

Q. Besides cycling, what’s your biggest distraction as lock down continues?
George: Cutting the grass mainly, the lawn has never looked so good.

Q. What’s the bike that gets the most use by you and why what is the best thing about it?
George: At the moment it would definitely be my Ribble SLR rim brake bike which is my dedicated turbo machine. Prior to this it would be my disc brake version, this bike is amazing. Stiff, light and the disc bikes really make it feel quick as you can carry more speed with confidence!

Q. What’s the weirdest thing you have seen since this crisis began
George: People doing things that they should have been doing before: washing hands, disinfecting door handles etc

Q. Finally, where you do you enjoy riding the most in this country or abroad?
George: I love riding where I live, sometimes I take it for granted. Quiet, hilly and very idyllic. The only down side is the road surfaces, this is why it’s sometimes nice to go and ride around the mega smooth roads of Spain, Netherlands or some of Belgium.
