Bradley Wiggins was 50 years too late

The English we have correctly applauded Bradley Wiggins, as he won the 2012 Tour de France. 
But I can reveal here that some 50 years earlier cyclist Robert Armstrong not only wore the yellow jersey, but was also top dog in the 1960 UK Cycling Proficiency Test.

Robert, pictured here, was awarded 99% in his trials. Were it not for his electic hooter he would have scored a straight 100%. An unbelievable score, not heard of this side of the Pyrenees.

However, his hooter let him down.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
