Born in County Durham, Tom Simpson was one of Britain’s greatest cyclists. Specialising in pursuit racing, he won amateur medals at both the 1956 Olympics and the 1958 Commonwealth Games.In 1959, Simpson moved to France, winning his first professional race, the Tour de Flanders, two years later. He was the first ever British rider to wear the Yellow Jersey, finishing 6th overall in the Tour de France of 1962. His pleasant disposition made him popular with both fans and the peloton.Sadly, in the thirteenth stage of the Tour of 1967, Simpson collapsed and died during and ascent of Mount Ventoux. He was 29 years old. A memorial on the roadside close to where he died has since become a place of pilgrimage. His character and charm, but determination and will to win ensures that Tom, le plus fort will always be held in high esteem by his fellow cyclists.“His body ached, his legs grew tired, but still he would not give in.”
There's so much exciting wine emerging from Spain, where do we start? You may know Rioja but there's so much more to Spain today. There's a new generation of winemakers making authentic wines that speak of the land. Regions such as Toro, Ribeiro, Madrid and Montsant - just to name a few of the reds. Then there's the mouthwatering whites that can match any number of tapas plates you throw at it.
Drop by - it's free! - and taste the New Spanish wine.
