Ahead of the Tour of Tasmania next month, InForm MAKE has appointed Hobart-turned-Melbourne ex-professional cyclist Campbell Flakemore as the media manager and behind the scenes storyteller for all National Road Series events.
Having experienced cycling at its most elite level, Flakemore made his professional debut in 2015 with BMC (the team of Australian Tour de France winner Cadel Evans), spending the year living and racing in the WorldTour.
While everything appeared fine from the outside, Flakemore was struggling with life as a pro cyclist and eventually pulled the pin on his cycling career at the end of the year.
Today, his passion for the sport instead expresses itself in studying a sport development university degree while working on Stanley Street Social; a conversation on racing, the future of sport, and the challenges of pro-life.
With a passion for media, and an undeniable love for the sport, Flakemore’s experiences racing in Australia and abroad make him a well-informed reporter on the InForm MAKE team: few NRS followers know the intricacies of racing quite like the 26-year-old.
“Im super happy to be involved with InForm MAKE, they have given me an opportunity to work within the cycling circles and i’m also looking forward to helping out the younger riders where i can,” Flakemore said.
Having experienced the Tour of Tasmania himself with two stage wins, the boy from Hobart will uncover all of the action through our social channels and website, with the tour taking place from 14 - 18th November (follow us on Twitter here and Instagram here).
