The 1934 World’s Cycling Championship Trial

Thanks to a trip to Brooklands Museum in September, I discovered that my great-great-uncle Ernest Johnson had raced there in 1934 as part of the World’s Cycling Championship Trial.

I looked the race up using google and learned that it was held to select four cyclists to represent Great Britain at the World’s Road Race Championship in Leipzig later that year. My search also revealed that the University of Warwick actually have a programme from the race in their collection.

I got in touch with the university and an archivist kindly copied some relevant pages for me. You can see my great-great-uncle’s name listed on page 23:
