  • Dennis Horn track racing in the thirties
    the decade or so before WWII and I am taking the liberty of promoting the resulting book which is being published by Adrian Bell of Mousehold Press The story focuses on one rider Dennis Horn who was a legend in the Fens and Norfolk where I grew up and went on to become a national and international track champion The book provides an insight into the lives led by a band of grass and hard track racers who travelled the country fighting for prizes which in view of the time they devoted to this must have become a way of life It portrays the track world of the Thirties in which Horn competed where crowds of tens of thousands followed these gladiators to events around the country The book also deals with Claud Butler s involvement in the track world during that era Dennis Horn Racing for an English Rose by Peter Underwood with contributions by Geoff Waters pp 84 with 12 pp black and white photographs ISBN 978 1 874739 66 1 210 x 148 mm Price 8 95 At the age of 20 Dennis Horn won his first English Rose the emblem of a National track champion Throughout the 1930s he rapidly graduated from the rough and tumble of makeshift grass track racing at country fairs and gala sports days in provincial towns to assail the heights of British track cycling on the great urban cycling bastions of the time the hard surfaced stadiums of London s Herne Hill and Manchester s Fallowfield and become the star of British track racing Every year from 1931 to 1938 he was awarded the season long Meredith Trophy to add to those legendary gold and silver cups he d won in fiercely contested track battles in front of crowds of tens
