And you are:

I am Jim Trevor also known as ‘the Hellenic Hawk’ as I live and work in Halkidiki, North Greece, but am based in Brough. So the nickname seemed fitting.

 

I first joined Hull Thursday in 1986 and was a regular time trial cycle racer, as a schoolboy and also rode in the GHS championships for Hull Grammar School. In the late 80s I competed in road races as a Junior. During the late 90s I returned to the sport competing in open time trials. After a spell of MTB riding in the 00s I returned to open time trial racing in 2009, and have continued ever since.

 

I am a member of the VTTA (Veteran Time Trial Association) and participate in their competitions.
I am affiliated to the Vegan Cyclist Organisation, an organisation that amongst other causes is proving that power from plant based foods is more efficient than from animal products for cyclists.
