Mike Cuming – Tour of Korea 2013 Winner


On Sunday, Rapha Condor JLT 22 year-old Mike Cuming won the eight stage UCI 2.2 Tour of Korea from a field which included Pro Continental teams MTN and Champion System, to join his dad as a member of that exclusive club.

British winners of national tours – Milk Race apart?

Bradley Wiggins, Tour de France; Cayn Theakston Tour of Portugal; Vin Denson, Tour of Luxembourg; David Millar Tour of Denmark; Mark Cavendish, Tour of Qatar and Robert Millar, Tours of Britain and Catalonia.

Catalonia’s not a country?’ best not say that to a Catalan.

In addition he was second in the Tours of Italy, Spain and Switzerland.

But there’s one National Tour the Brits have been particularly successful in; the Tour of Ireland – with the likes of Scotsman Jimmy Rae, Doug Dailey, Brian Jolly and Russ Downing all on the roll of honour.

And another man whose name is on that Emerald Isle list is a certain Mr. David Cuming (GB & Fangio).
