It's simple but it's fascinating
It may just be me but I keep stumbling over the Canberra Bicycle Museum site and finding myself reading all of the winners and places in various NSW cycling events going back to about 1904. Like I'm drawn to rediscover these names that haunt me... famous ones like Gary Sutton but also the clubbies that I have met or raced with, some semi-famous and others less noticed. Like Col Goldie, multiple state champ in the late 60s, who is "famous" to me (or infamous) as the Spiderman in the local Alfa Romeo owners club. People I race with now in C grade were state champs yonks ago. I find it fascinating... see what you think. Probably helps to have raced in NSW during the past 102 years, anyway!
