Phil Thomas – Strongman Rider in the ’80s

"I wouldn’t look at who was riding because I was so confident I would win..."


If you were around British bike racing in the 70’s and 80’s then you’ll remember the name, Phil Thomas. One of those Liverpool ‘cheeky chappies’ who were so strong in British cycling back then and a prolific winner on the road and criterium scene. 

Thomas could win anything from a seafront criterium to the Manx International via 10 mile track races to Milk Race stages.
