Harrogate brothers Nico and Max Milnes have been taking the world of mountain biking by storm with their recent race at Hamsterly Forest in Durham, where Nico took 7th place in the 19-29 Senior/Elite Men’s and Max took home gold in the under 18 youth category.
The Harrogate College students ride under ‘Milnes Brothers Racing’, sponsored by Joe’s Bike Shop in Worksop and have been busy involving other students in the building of their brand. Public Service student Max reached out to Art and Design student Madeline Botros who created a logo for the brothers that they will be using across their social media platforms to help with advertising and sponsorship.
Apprentice Joiner Nico Milnes is keen to get photography students on board, giving them a fantastic opportunity to gain some real life work experience, in a unique setting and would love to involve as many other students as possible.
“My brother and I are really passionate about our sport, and are really keen to involve as many other students at Harrogate College as possible, not necessarily riding bikes but if others can gain experience from our efforts then that’s great!” – Nico Milnes.
