Sean Yates garage sale!
17.08.07 by Buffalo Bill
Sean Yates, in my view one of the top ten best ever British riders, former Yellow Jersey, Tour stage winner, and all-round archetypal cycling hard-man, is having a garage sale of unwanted cycling stuff that he has accumulated over 25 years in cycling.
It’s taking place at Bryle Cottage, Tompset Bank, Forest Row, Sussex on 26/27 August, according to a classified ad in this week’s edition of Cycling Weekly.
For a laugh, here’s my list of the 10 best British riders ever:
- Nicole Cooke (La Canibale – is there any race she hasn’t won at least twice?)
- Robert Millar (King of the Mountains, Tour de France and Giro d’Italia; 2nd overall in Giro and Vuelta a Espana)
- Tommy Simpson (World Champion; Tour of Flanders; Tour of Lombardy; Milan – San Remo; Yellow Jersey TdF; stage winner VaE)
- Chris Boardman (Yellow Jersey, stage winner X 3 TdF; Hour Record; Olympic Gold, World Champion Pursuit)
- Sean Yates (Yellow Jersey, stage winner TdF; stage winner VaE; rode all 3 Grand Tours without gloves)
- David Millar (Yellow Jersey, stage winner X 2 TdF; stage winner VaE)
- Barry Hoban (stage winner X 8 TdF, X 2 VaE; Gand-Wevelgem)
- Beryl Burton (5 times World Champion Pursuit; 3 Silver, 3 Bronze medals Olympics)
- Brian Robinson (first ever British finisher, stage winner X 2 TdF)
- Graeme Obree (Hour Record; World Champion Pursuit)
