The other night in the pub (where else?) a very heated discussion started about who exactly "Was or is the greatest cyclist ever?" After the imbibing of much 'falling down water' some sort of consensus emerged.
Here are the results of the 'HP Lovecraft Holiday Funclub' Jury.
Greatest Rider of all time (either sex) - Beryl Burton
Greatest Female Rider - 1st Beryl Burton, 2nd Marianne Vos
Greatest Male Rider - Eddie Merckx, 2nd No Consensus
What do you think?
