Bath Road 100 mile time trial 1952

Bath Road 100 1952


Ken Beck,the archivist and club secretary of the Southport RCC, has sent me this result sheet from the Bath Road 100 mile time trial in 1952. It was among the papers of the late Bob Bird who finished in tenth place. Not many names I recognise although I know Vic Gibbons was a big hitter back then.
In fifteenth place is Billy McAteer from the famous Birkenhead boxing family. That same year Billy teamed up with Bob Bird to take the Liverpool to London tandem record, that had stood for eighteen years, by just one minute! It is a surprise to see top roadman Fred Krebs one place behind Billy as I have never before seen Krebs in a time trial result.

RAF Five Day race 1953

After hearing about this race from Gino Goddard I now have the result. Sadly I don’t have the stage results but my recollection is that Joe Christison murdered the field on stage two. Plenty of names I recognise.

BLRC London Section championship 1951?

BLRC London Section championship 1951?

Not a good ride by Bracky who was half an hour down. I think it is 1951 as that seems to be the only year that the Dayton team was run. Not many names I know although I am fairly sure Alan Lancaster ran a pub near Burnham Beeches.
