To the CR folks,

We should note that Brian Robinson of GB finished the Tour in 1938 and was still finishing in 1961. Wow, if it is the same gentleman he had a long run indeed in a very tough sport. Those Brit's sure are plucky.

Brian Robinson, I have heard of over the years but I did not realize he raced and completed so many TDF.

To long years in the saddle,

Gilbert Anderson
