BWC Final: Ones To Watch

The Ones to Watch 

David Millar

Profession: Professional road cyclist (Retired)

The Scotsman rode with Cofidis (1997-2004) and Garmin-Sharp (2008-2014) during his 17 year professional career. He has won four stages of the Tour de France, five of the Vuelta a España and one stage of the Giro d'Italia. He is the only British rider to have worn all Tour de France jerseys and one of six to have worn the yellow jersey. He was also the first (of two) British riders ever to have worn the leader's jersey in all three Grand Tours.

This is David Millar’s first Brompton World Championship final.

This will be David Millar's first BWC Final

Michael Hutchinson

Profession: Professional road cyclist (Retired)

Michael was brought up in Northern Ireland. He represented a number of professional teams and Great Britain & Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth games. The time trial specialist has won a number of national championships and his book, The Hour won him the 2007 Best New Writer in the British Sports Books Awards.
Michael won three consecutive BWC Final titles in 2011, 2012, 2013 – he is hoping to regain his title in 2015.

Will Butler-Adams OBE

Profession: Brompton Bicycle CEO

Will Butler-Adams OBE joined Brompton Bicycles in 2002, became a Director in 2006 and took over as the CEO in 2008. Over that period the company has grown from a £2million turnover with 27 staff to one of over £27million turnover with over 230 staff. He is a Commissioner at the UK Commission for Employment and Skills.

Will’s father will also be competing in this year’s race, so keep an eye for the family rivalry.

Ian Drake

Profession: British Cycling CEO

In 2004 Ian took over as Participation and Operations Director at British Cycling leading their ambition to use medal success to inspire greater participation in the sport. This resulted in an increase in participation in cycle sport in the UK, prompting British Cycling to extend its activities to leisure and recreation.

In 2007 Ian was appointed Deputy Chief Executive assuming responsibility for Governance and Participation, before replacing Peter King as Chief Executive in 2009 since when he has overseen an unprecedented growth in membership.

Ian placed 36th at the 2013 BWC, which is a great effort considering he only bought his Brompton on the morning of the race.
