Brooks England: Tommy Godwin’s 1948 Olympic Victory Jan 9, 2012




I usually don’t like posting all the photos from a source but these three are too good to pass up. Tommy Godwin is 91 years old and recently, he returned to Herne Hill Velodrome in south London to take a few laps around the Velodrome where he won two medals in the 1948 Olympics. His victories in both the team pursuit and the 1km individual time trial were both made on his BSA with a Brooks saddle. The bike is in the same exact condition now as it was over 64 years ago.

Hats off to Brooks for this post. Amazing!
