Grand Prix of Essex

Grand Prix of Essex

This is the 1958 race. Frank Evans, Manchester Velo is fourth. I see Frank twice a year in Mallorca where he still gets a few in. Note the team prize is “Prix De L’Equipe”-pretentious twats!

John Brackstone riding a T T T

Bracky1949This photo is endorsed Esoteric TTT 1949. I am a little disappointed that Bracky didn’t bother to remove his mudguards. Note the single roller gear.

Why Canada?

In recent months greenjersey has received a large number of hits from Canada (well everything is relative). Now I am not complaining, I am a fan of Canada being, possibly, the only English race supporter to have watched two World pro champs in that country at Montreal in 1974 and Hamilton in 2003. What’s more I am a big fan of Cowboy Junkies!

I guess there must be a link to, or at least a mention of, greenjersey on a Canadian website. If you know what is going on please post a comment.

Chequers Grand Prix 1956

Chequers Grand Prix 1956

Podium place here for Bracky although he would have been disappointed to be out-galloped by Frank Ward (later Kenton R.C.) Note Gino third counter of winning Kenton R.C. team-shame on him! Also Rocco Richardson last man

Brighton B.E.S.A. road race 1951

A third place for Bracky in this chipper. I guess that fifth place is Ron Jowers as he was in the Ealing CC early in his career. They both later joined the West London R.C. where Ron was Bracky’s lead out man. I recently came across a query about the Brent Jewish R.C. (see last man) but I can’t recall the details.

Susanna Hoffs-Still Smokin Hot at 55

Y’all know Susanna from The Bangles right? Just check out her version of Different Drum. For me it has knocked Blondie’s Heart of Glass off the podium for the best ever pop song.

By the way if you are a perv you may wish to check out this clip. No singing but there are compensations.
