A reader of this blog suggested a comparison of club racing classes from my era with classes today. I dug out my old AFM rules book from 1979 and then downloaded the 2016 AFM rule book. Hoo boy. Things have changed. See the page VV. Club Racing Classes – Then and Now.
In the 1970s Cook Neilson and the late Phil Schilling went road racing, Cook riding with Phil tuning. They chronicled their adventures in a series of articles in Cycle magazine titled “Beyond Racer Road.” With Cook’s permission I have re-published the first of those articles. See the page VW. Beyond Racer Road 1 – the Toe Gets Dipped.
