Tim Mountford, Part Two – Finally, the First Professional Contract

-

In Part One of the Tim Mountford story we heard how the eighteen year-old Tim Mountford was living on his own, sharing a flat with another rider, working at a local bike shop and training for the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, as well as being creating and being the chief editor of a cycling magazine titled the “Southern California Cycling Journal”.

Tim Mountford went on to race in two Olympic Games and competed at world level in the tandem sprint before turning to the Professional Six Day scene and working his way up through various sponsors and contracts to land the biggie; a place on the famous TI Raleigh team managed by the legendary Peter Post.
