Holme Moss Part 2 (potential)

I have realised that in the spare room lies a photo album, which has a number of b&w photos that I took of said 1991/2 (or whenever it was – those days in Huddersfield were wild times and the memory isn’t what it used to be.  Or is it?  I can’t remember!) Tour Of Britain over Holme Moss, including in fact a slightly blurred picture of Jimmy Savile riding standing up out of the sunroof of one of the leading team cars.  If I can dig it out then i’ll post them up.

Meanwhile, it seems that having Sir Jim in the leading car is not as laughable as I had thought for the many years that have elapsed.  Because it turns out that he used to be a professional cyclist himself,  having competed in the 1951 Tour of Britain.  “How’s about that, then?”
