We previously commented on the diverse regional strength of British cycling. https://cyclostats.com/2014/10/28/the-strength-of-the-union/
What a pity then that no records are kept for the various regions of the UK. Cyclostats has attempted to fix this with the publication of track records for seniors and juniors, men and women for the major timed events. You will see that for some regions, particularly Northern Ireland and Isle of Man there are some missing pieces. We hope to fill them in over time and with your help.
There are great names in every region’s list – Boardman, Pendleton etc for England, Obree, Hoy for Scotland, James and Thomas for Wales, Cavendish and Kennaugh for the Isle of Man and Houvenhagel for Northern Ireland. Olympic or World Champions all around.
Northern Ireland also features World Champion Martyn Irvine who rides for Ireland except at the Commonwealth Games where he reverts to the North.
