Chris Boardman never rode Paris–Roubaix, but his explanation as to why he studiously avoided the Hell of the North captures perfectly the dry, sardonic wit of Wirral’s most famous son. Nicknamed ‘The Professor’ for his meticulous attention to detail, Boardman was a time trial specialist who amassed a hugely impressive palmarès: breaking the world hour record on three occasions; winning gold in the Individual Pursuit at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona aboard his groundbreaking Lotus Type 108; and taking the yellow jersey in the prologue of the Tour de France on three occasions (1994, 1997, & 1998) being among the most famous.Hanging up his bike after his successfully breaking Eddy Merckx’s UCI Hour Record in 2000, Chris has since become a household name as a presenter and pundit for both the BBC and ITV, providing expert analysis and commentary on everything from the Tour de France to the Olympics.The mug is manufactured in the UK from enamel-covered steel in white with blue detailing. It is part of a collection featuring illustrated quotes from some of cycling’s most colourful characters.
