1959 - First B.C.F. National Road Race - Vintage Cycling
Published by Q Field-Boden
Unfortunately the very end of this recording is missing from the original material but the race was won by Bill Baty who provides the excellent and as always entertaining commentary on the event.
It is always sad to hear that riders had died or been injured whilst cycling. Bill mentions these things in his commentary as additional information but it's so sad to hear that some of these riders died whilst following their passion.
Great to see Ray Booty on the start line at 01:52.
Random musings of a UK based cycling coach. In July 2010 rode the entire Tour de France route starting and finishing 3 days before the pros came through, particularly interested in power based training. Other interests include technology, video recording and editing, photography, sailing, the outdoor life and pretty much anything else!
