Tom Simpson - 40th anniversary

Hi,

It's the 40th anniversary of the death of Tom Simpson on the Ventoux today - a real legend of British cycling.

As a keen cyclist from northern England I have always been interested in the story of Tom or Tommy Simpson - but there doesn't seem to be much coverage in the sports pages of national newspapers - a reflection of how cycling is covered generally I guess.

I've seen this story on the website of Simpson's local paper which is really good:

Has anyone else got any reflections or recollections of this great man?
