  4. No mention for the Late Great Steve Hislop one of the best bikers to come out of Scotland

  5. Great list all except for one Lance Armstrong. No respect from me. He once said that not ever starting Paris – Roubaix was the greatest regret of his career….given the chance by coming back to cycling, and he still didn’t enter. he is a strong cyclist but a fraud of a human being.

  6. Any more Scottish Cyclists? I am going to research and compile the top 10 of all time, as per recent email to 2JP. But do it as a post on my blog not an email.

    Noted in the press the passing of a true legend – The great Andy Holden of Tipton Harriers.
    Olympic Steeplechaser in 1972, Two Bridges winner and a member of the great Tipton road and c/c teams of the 70’s and 80’s.

    Also, like all true Harriers like to celebrate run with a beer or three

    The roads will be quieter without him

    We will drink to him and other absent Harriers at the 125 years Teviotdale Harriers dinner on Friday.


    • Hi Derek,
      Getting the train up on Friday , did buy a new suit for it.

      • FFR
        Nope, only discovered it was ‘formal’ on Monday.
        My only suit looks like it might fit you!!
        Will have to be trousers shirt, Harriers Centenery tie and a Leather jacket that looks like a cast off from the Soprano’s – if I’m stopped at the door its tie off and round to the YM


      • Hi Derek
        A great night on Friday , plenty burn up boys at the 125th dinner.

  36. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to
    no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect
    against hackers?
