Thank You Gangmakers and Stayers:
First of all I would like to thank the Gangmakers:
And a personal thank you and apprication from me and members of the British Pacing Association to the European Stayers who all rode magnificently.
As always, an event of this nature needs an enormous amount of help and assistance from people who freely give of their time and goodwill.It is not posssible to list everyone who has assisted but a big thank you to all anyway.
However we are particularly indebted to Ron Keeble at Gem Hygiene, Paul Spender at Derny Sport UK, John Rolf at Colostrum UK, Ron Beckett, Frances Rudd at Adept Industrial Coatings, Gerry Taylor,
Special thanks also to: Volker Brix,
"The Event could have been cancelled by British Cycling"
It was a miracle that the event took place at all. I was contacted by British Cycling on the wed 23rd March and was asked to supply evidence of the European pacers insurance.By 10am the following day thurs.
I spent all day wed gathering the information.This was not an easy task. By on the thurs morning 24th March. I had got the information. And e-mailed it to British Cycling. I was also told that the British riders Simon COPE and Bryan TAYLOR where not covered by British Cycling to pace behind 650cc pacing machines.
As they where only covered on BC insurance to pace behind a 125cc machine.
I was told by BC that if I got the evidence of the European pacers insurance then British Cycling insurers would be happy to insure the British riders so they could ride in the event. Then at 1.10pm on the thurs 24th March the day before the event I had the phone call from British Cycling and it was all ok the race could go ahead."Thank God for that"
The UCI say that pacing machines are from 500cc to 1000cc. Both Bryan and Simon have won national championships behind these actual 650cc pacing machines in the past.
The pacers who came to Herne Hill are all regular and professional members of the European Pacing circuit, whose cover is acceptable to the UCI for Stayer and Derny events on track and road and has been accepted by every other country where they have competed . The UCI requires that pacers must be covered for all third party liability risks in all the countries recognised by the UCI.
When I found out 18 months ago I had know insurance cover from British Cycling for pacing in Derny or Stayer events in the

The motor paced Stayers race pits rider against rider, who use the slipstream of a pacing Triumph Thunderbird to attempt to gain an advantage. Riders will have to work hard to stay on the pace & you can feel the track rumbling as they race by at fast speeds.
Stayers racing is huge on the continent and the Pacers are almost as famous as the riders, many of whom play to the crowd & sport dashing mustaches to set them apart.
