Competitive Cycling

Hmmm over 40 years of calling out stuff in the cycling press. Longer, really.

I found this gem in the archives (a.k.a. the loft) from 1979. There must be a second page but this is all I have. The editor at Competitive Cycling (Jim McFadden) must have published an article without checking all the details. Hell – he DID publish it.

It’s not so much that I don’t extend to the interviewed an opportunity to have his opinion. But when you condescend, or malign, or belittle, or simply pop off without knowing the facts – especially about a friend and or a fellow tradesman, it makes my radar.

This is a scan of the carbon copy I composed but hadn’t yet finalized. It made it into the next issue. But I forget if any tails were showing between legs.
