“ENGERS WAS BOTH HERO AND VIL­LAIN OF BRI­TISH CY­CLING”

Cycling Weekly - - HOT KIT -

Ar­ranged into ‘14 Lessons from the Life of Alf Engers’ from de­tailed in­ter­views with Engers him­self, Jones goes in search of what it was ex­actly that drove the Lon­doner to pur­sue and fi­nally achieve his ul­ti­mate am­bi­tion — the sub-50-minute ‘25’. The re­sult is an ex­traor­di­nary story shot through with Engers’s dry wit and old-school turn of phrase that ought to be a set text for any­body want­ing to learn about the golden years of Bri­tish time tri­alling.
