The George IV are delighted to welcome Eurosport’s lead cycling commentator Carlton Kirby, the Voice of Cycling, to the Boston Room for an evening of tall tales and frank opinions from his 25 years’ covering the sport.
In a revealing evening for all cycling fans, Carlton will be sharing his front-row experiences from the Tour de France and other big races – plus the lessons he’s learned from life on the road, as a bon viveur in budget hotels across Europe.
The evening comes three days into the 2021 edition of the Tour de France, which Carlton (and other British broadcasters) are covering from the UK, as part of international Covid restrictions.
Carlton Kirby has been in the commentary box for a golden age of British cycling and the evening will also include stories of his not-always-happy dealings with British stars from Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome to Mark Cavendish.
Carlton will be in conversation with former Procycling magazine writer Duncan Steer.
Carlton will be also be signing copies of his recent book ‘Magic Spanner: The World of Cycling According to Carlton Kirby’.
Early Bird tickets are £12, or £20 including a book (RRP £9.99).
Full price tickets will be £15 or £23 with a book.
