Looking back at Beryl Burton, whose career spanned some five decades, the fiercely competitive British cyclist is arguably the greatest female cyclist of all time.
During her career, Burton won no fewer than seven world titles (two road race championships and five track pursuit titles) and 96 national titles (12 road race championships, 13 pursuit titles, and 71 time trial titles against the clock).
While several current day riders, such as Marianne Vos, maybe celebrated cyclists on their own right, few stand a chance of eclipsing Burton’s accomplishments.
With the help of daughter and British cyclist Emma Pooley, we look back at the life of this great female cyclist.
