Mr golden bike himself. Shame to hear that.
He was a very steady Eddie and no Bruce penhall but he did sign my program at Perry Barr in the seventies!

zxcv said on P&S punishment...

"I am not going into detail but just to say i can see why your confusing things, NONE of that is applicable and not what you think it is.

All i will say just wait and you will see i am right. The embargo will be lifted in January and we will buy two 6 million pound forwards."

In fairness he achieved far more than Penhall. Another one ruined by dementia. Shame

"Steady Eddie" ? .... he was World Champion about seven times and was treated like a God in New Zealand. Made Belle Vue almost unbeatable for a period of 5 years.

You not getting him confused with George Major who rode for the Brummies in the 70's with Alan Grahame, Andy Grahame, Arthur Browning, Phil Herne, Carl Askew etc ?

Steady Eddie as in his riding style not on what he achieved, which was unbelievable and yes along with Barry Briggs God like in New Zealand.

I thought Bruce penhall in his short period of riding was the most exciting rider I had ever seen at the time.

George major?? Old banana boots himself! Some of them names brought back some memories especially Carl askew.

. Six times .... Holier than thou , who is on Maugers adopted home , The Gold Coast , as we cyber speak , mentioned Mauger to a New Zealander recently .Hed never heard of him ! ... I couldn't help be be VERY disappointed last night , Sky Sports News was on in my living room last night and not once did they mention his passing . However , Chesterfields goalkeeper has been offered a new contract , which was obviously more newsworthy . I saw Nigel Boocock beat Ivan Mauger in a match race to win The Golden Helmet in 1969 (?) when both were at their peak . Maugers peak was obviously higher than our Nigel's ... I never liked Mauger , in the 1969 World final , having secured the title by winning his first four rides , he " threw " his last . This got his BelleVue team mate Soren Sjosten third place on the rostrum . Nigel Boocock would have got it otherwise .
