Cyclist Magazine Podcast

Mar 21 2024 • 1 hr 8 mins

Maurice Burton joins Will and James for this week's show. Burton became Britain's first black cycling champion in 1974, and by 1975 was on his way to a stellar career racing track and Six-Day events on the Continent. Here he tells Will and James about his early days living in a butchers shop with a man who never washed, trading bikes or cars, competing in 56 Six-Day races and being sabotaged numerous times. Today, Burton runs De Ver Cycles in Streatham, London, and has just had his biography published by Bloomsbury, The Maurice Burton Way, which is out on 28th March and available to pre-order now.
