In Pursuit of Stardom - Tony Hewson

Les Nomades du Velo Anglais


£14.95 
 

How the intrepid Tony Hewson and two other hopeful cyclists set off to conquer the European racing scene in an old, battered, converted ex-WD ambulance. Variously mistaken for gypsies, terrorists, undertakers, market traders, these were our original cash-starved, have-a-go pioneers, who inspired a generation of would-be stars to cross the Channel.

For much of cycling's Fabulous Fifties it was Brian Robinson alone who flew the flag for Britain abroad - that is until three young men set out to emulate his success, starting from ground zero.

This book tells the story of how, along with fellow Yorkshireman Vic Sutton and South Londoner John Andrew, the intrepid Tony Hewson set off to conquer the European racing scene, first off in an old, battered, converted ex-WD ambulance, then in an oil-leaking pre-war Wolseley with a caravan in tow. Variously mistaken for gypsies, terrorists, undertakers, even market traders, these were our original cash-starved, have-a-go pioneers.
