Last year I published some classic time trial photos, by Bernard Thompson which were very popular. So this year I’ve found another 30 to publish.
The legendary Beryl Burton O.B.E at the start of a 24 hour time trial.
Ray Booty was the first man inside 4 hours for the 100 mile time trial. He rode 3 hrs. 58 mins. 28 secs. in the Bath Road Hundred of 1956
