My dad was in the Wyndham Ian Robson he wasn't to bad a cyclist, he introduced me to the sport. But unfortunately he passed away 2006 from cancer even while he was ill he still rode his bike god bless him


I remember Ian very well. We were both at Coleshill Grammar School, then I took over his newspaper round and later we trained together and rode many time trials and track races together in the Wyndham RCC - he was always faster than me, a very stylish rider. I also remember your mother and they introduced me to the Midland Jazz Club.
My brother-in-law also knew him when he came back to cycling and joined the Warwick Roads CC, and was even faster when he was in his 40s.
I telephoned him in the early 2000s but unfortunately never got round to meeting up.

The great Dave Watkins sadly passed away in early September 2021. He was a superb and fearless sprinter with much success

Sorry about Dave, my condolences. I last saw him at a Dunlop get-together approximately 7 years ago.


He was a nice guy. RIP
