Rob Warner is a legend in the British mountain biking scene. A key cog as far back as the early 90s, Rob became the first ever British rider to win on the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup tour when he took the top spot at Kaprun in Austria in 1996.
He rode with Saracen alongside Steve Peat, then for MBUK and Giant Bicycles, winning the UK National Champs in ’97, ’98 and ’01 before turning his hand to commentary, where he turned out to be, well, quite the character.
