Photo GalleryI would welcome photos from 1992 to 1997 inclusive
The gallery is in reverse chronological order(if that is logical?)
There are but three small pictures from 1996 and three from 2003 - these are all I could recover from the archive of the previous Brian Donnan website.
P.S further to the last bit about Brian's archive the results seem to have been the first three and members of the Veterans Racing Club. As I type this I have been kindly sent most of the 90's results in full!!! I have put those up. Thanks to Cathy Melia and Stuart Crick for hunting down.

|Graham Lansdell in the 1993 : The earliest TCT picture???
The following three photos show Chris Thompson demonstrating the ravages
|Winning in 1995 - on loaned Dawes Racer|
|Winning in 2000 - on loaned Paris "Tour de France"|
|Not winning in 2005 - on loaned Raleigh Roadster which fell apart progressively. Gotcha!!|

Graham Lansdell time-line
|Graham Lansdell in the 1993||Graham Lansdell in the 2013 - same Coventry Eagle as 1993.
As Cathy has noted, Graham's hair-colour has changed a little but has his riding ability faltered?? Indeed it has. His time in 1993 was 28m 56s. In 2013 he did 29m 01s. Case proven!!

|Winner John Dainty's J.Pavey re-worked track bike|
|* After I asked Phil about his infection caused by the Blandford fly. I reached, as one does, for Sikipedia. I am familiar with a beer called Blandford fly but thought that too much beer should not prevent Phil from competing. However I now realise that the troublesome biting critter on the beer label is the cause of the problem. It seems to be a manifestation of the climate change, which some still don't believe in. Set the flies on them!!!. It seems the BF's like to have a blood gorge before mating, similar to the use of cocktails by humans in Nottingham City centre on a Saturday night.|
