News – Elliott Guest of Honour at Champs Luncheon

Hailing from Sheffield, Malcolm has always been a popular rider especially in Lincoln with one of the early wins in a long racing career being the 1983 Lincoln Grand Prix.

That event was the last to be held on what might be called a Sprinter’s Course with the finish on the long straight Long Leys Road. The following year the course changed on to the City Centre route which included Michalegate and finishing on Lincoln High Street’s High Bridge outside Woolworths.

He went on from 3rd place overall in the 1983 Milk Race to second in 1986 and eventually winning overall in 1987 winning five stages that year and repeating the overall win in 1990.

1983 was Malcolm’s last year as an amateur before moving in the professional ranks and a contract with the Raleigh Weinmann team in 1984. A long and chequered career followed riding with several top teams and rides in the Tour de France, Vuelta, Olympic Games and a win in the British National Professional Road Race Championship in 1993.
