I was only alerted to the sad death of Trevor Bull yesterday via Tx message from my good friend Keiran and although I only met Trevor a couple of times whilst visiting Harborne Cycle surgery I can still say what a fine chap he was.
For those not aware of this Birmingham cycling legend here is a little bit of background –
Trevor was an Olympic track rider namely in 1964 when he competed in the team pursuit, he held some UK records in his early days and then circa 1969 he turned pro for Sun -Truwell to ride on the road.
He crossed over from track to road very well and became a regular winner especially in the criterium races and flatter road races. Sponsor wise he spent most of his better days with Raleigh / Carlton teams and then Dawes.
28/12/1944 – 04/04/2009.
