    Dear Mr. A.Perkins,

    I really appreciated and I thank you very much your information.

    Best regards.

  • I rather think that requesting and publishing the riders' dates of birth on a public forum is an unwarranted infringement of their privacy (unless they choose to reply in person).

    Don't forget their banks will use the dates as one level of their woefully inadequate security procedures.

    In that case, I'm able to get the dates of birth of practically all the protour riders from www.dewielersite.be and thus invade their privacy???? [:0][:(]

    tea is good

    Brian Ruston was in the same club as me. His year of birth should be 1947. Have not seen him for years. He won a stage of the 1970 Milk Race in a lone break and was one of the top Brit finishers that year. He turned pro in 1971, but only lasted a couple of years.

    The best source, as someone else suggested, is Veloriders UK. There are a loy of salty old pro's on there.

    Dear Mr. Blackwell,

    I thank you very much for the information concerning your former team mate Brian Ruston.
    Indeed, I've already posted a similar message in Veloriders but I was no lucky until the moment.

    Best regards.

    Another non private site!
    You should be able to search for riders

    Hi everybody,

    Perhaps I should have told you (in the beginning of this topic) the reason of my request.
    I'm building a database of all British professional cycling riders, teams and sponsors since 1966 until now. And on what concerns former British professional riders and team managers it's obvious that I find many difficulties. These same questions were made in other British forums and in one of them I had the privilege to be contacted by some former professional riders themselves also asking the reason of my requests. And after my explanation they were very kind and also promised me trying to help.

    I like cycling since I was a little kid and I know all the existing (french, dutch, etc.) sites. But, on what the above listed riders' dates of birth concerns, nothing is found.

    So, wishing this may help you to understand that nothing concerns with privacy invasion, I renew my thanks for your possible help.

    Best regards.
