Deeside Olympic Road Race 1964

A big thank you to Roger Milroy for sending in the action photo above, Roger adds the following information.
"I just came accross your web page a couple of days ago - here´s a photo of me - off the back! - in an early season Deeside Olympic Road Race in 1964. The photo was taken by Billy Soens and you can see Ken Matthews of Kirby CC ( who had a weekly column in the Liverpool Echo ) in the background. The bike is an Eddie Soens I bought from Pete Cubbon, formerly of Merseyside Wheelers and a founder member of Liverpool Premier Road Club, to use while Billy was building a new frame for me; it´s easy to date the vintage as large-flange hubs had not yet gone out of style and the TA chainrings are bolted to cranks with cotter pins!"
We'd love to see your race action shot's... Please contact us at the normal address .
