“I have been a coach for six or seven years now, I suppose. The history here at Herne Hill makes it special. We have been here since 1892. They had the 1948 Olympics here. Bradley Wiggins started his career here.
“My best memory is when Wiggins rode the Good Friday meeting here along with some other big names. They have a Good Friday meeting they have been holding for just over 100 years now. So, we used to get some really big names then.
“My worst memory was my last race here when I was doing an elimination race and someone in front of me hit the fence and came down. I managed to ride into a gap and avoided him. But he broke his ribs and managed to drive one into his lungs. So I packed it in after that.”
