In 1973 Raleigh took a bold step by inviting a four-rider Raleigh/CRCofA Team, to compete in the 8 day 750 mile Tour of Ireland. No one gave us a chance, but John Howard won a stage and finished 3rd overall, Allis finished 5th and Humphreys was 3rd in a stage and was awarded the “Most Aggressive Rider” for that day. Phil Liggett was the commaisare and invited us (on the spot) to compete in his prestigious Milk Race the following year. I will show a 25 minute film of the race and a quick slide show of the Tour of Ireland Reunion held this past summer when John Howard and I returned to Ireland and road with our former competitors.
