When Brant met Charlie

When Brant met Charlie

On Friday, Prince Charles came to Hebden Bridge, the wonderfully eccentric and weird northern former mill town, nestling in the Pennines, and home to some wonderful technical mountainbiking, big road climbs, and complete with big flooding problem. It's home to Brant our chief designer and, well, Brant.

Hebden Bridge was badly affected by floods a couple of weeks ago, the same weekend we were badly affected by floods at Mountain Mayhem, and Charlie came up to see the damage and discuss some funding that he was putting in place through some of his charitable associations.

Brant headed out with his friend Emma, in clothing and accessories suitable for riding in wet conditions. That'd be wetsuit and flippers then! And sure enough, they bumped into Charlie, and had a chat.

Emma captured it all on her Go Pro, and put it on her website here.

Coverage was amazing:

The Sun website, The Guardian website, and a whole bunch of Sunday papers. 

Brant was riding a proto Titus El Guapo, and Emma wasn't on a Planet X road bike.
