Paul Curran – English ‘Legend’ of the 80’s and 90’s Track and Road

Paul, in GB colours at the 1986 Milk Race.

If you were on the UK race scene in the late 70’s through to the mid-90’s then you’ll be familiar with the name ‘Paul Curran.’

The man could do the lot – he was British Champion in the team pursuit, madison, points, motorpaced, pro criterium, amateur road race, team time trial and hill climb.

He won every big race on the UK calendar from Girvan to the Isle of Man to Essex via The Peak and Cotswolds.

And that’s before we mention the Commonwealth Games Road Race and Team Time Trial the Tour of Normandie and Circuit des Mines.

High times we had a word …

You were one versatile man on a bicycle, Paul!

“Yeah, I did a lot on the track – and well, track races are pretty much all the same, aren’t they?

“I didn’t switch to road until 1985 but I had all that track experience behind me.”

Being Scottish I have to ask you about Girvan; you won it three times…
