Olivia Campbell of Scarpa Racing visited The Bicycle Academy late in 2018 with a plan to build herself a race ready steel cyclocross bike that could also be used for summer bikepacking adventures. The bike has been painted with a design inspired by Olivia's cycling experiences and is named after the small Cornish fishing village Coverack where she visited her grandparents as a child.
"I learnt a huge amount [...] this was the first time I'd built and designed a bike. It was great to have a brief and then work through the process. Ideas moved in all directions but ultimately came back to answer the key things I was looking for. Learning from experts in the trade and collaborating with friends was also a really enjoyable part of the whole journey."
The Camden Watch Company, a sponsor of the Scarpa Racing team, have written an article that tells the full story of Olivia's frame building experience. Follow the link below to read the full story.
