Going Hard for Equality
By John Houston
If you were to ask the woman or man in the street who is the greatest British cyclist of all time, you are likely to get one of three answers: Bradley Wiggins; Tour de France (TdF) winner and Gold Medal Olympian, Chris Froome, four times TdF winner (and planning on a shot at a fifth title), or Mark Cavendish multiple TdF stage winner, and arguably the best sprinter ever to have ridden a bike. All good, worthy shouts.
There aren’t many today, if any, who would say what I would consider to be the right answer – Beryl Burton.
