Brian Robinson Tribute Films

Brian Robinson

Brian Robinson, a British and European cycling legend, now in his eightieth year, was one of the first English speakers to try their luck at racing in continental Europe.

Robinson was the first to finish the Tour de France and the first to win a stage back in 1958. Brian also won the Dauphine-Libere in 1961.

Dear friend of Condor Cycles and top cycling writer, Graeme Fife, will also read extracts from his latest book about the cyclist, Brian Robinson: Pioneer.

As well as footage from from the 1953 Tour of Britain, previously unseen extracts from Ray Pascoe's movie will be shown, as will as archive film from Brian racing at a Herne Hill track meet.

The film screening afternoon will include:

Brian Robinson: A Gentleman Cyclist (Ray Pascoe, 2010, 40 minutes)
A Wheel in Britain: 1953 Tour of Britain (26 minutes)
Keep Going Lapebie! (Nicolas Philbert, 1988, 30 minutes)
