Sid Barras – Part Two; National Champion in ’79 – after 10 years of trying

-

In Part One of our interview with British professional legend, Sid Barras we discussed his amateur days, his motivation for turning pro, his strained relationship with Peter Post at Raleigh, his win in the Scottish Milk Race and that day at Eastway when he out-sprinted the great Eddy Merckx to take second place in the Glenryck Cup behind Didi Thurau.

In Part Two we discuss the race he was favourite for every year for a decade but which it took him 10 years to win; the British Professional Road Race Championship.
