    In November at the Rouleur Classic we will celebrate the very first inductees to the Cycling Hall of Fame. The Cycling Hall of Fame will serve as a permanent celebration of the greatest of the great riders, providing everlasting recognition of their achievements.

     

    In future years we plan to invite you, the Rouleur readership, to help decide who should become a member. For this first edition however, there could be no arguments as to who the first man and woman riders should be.

     

    The inaugural inductees will be Eddy Merckx and Beryl Burton. The Cannibal, with 525 professional victories to his name is indisputably the greatest rider of all time, and will be in attendance to receive his award in person.

     

    The late Beryl Burton’s career honours are almost too numerous to count. As well as dominating the UK cycling scene, Burton won two world road race championships and five more world titles on the track. She will be represented at the Rouleur Classic by her daughter Denise, who will accept the Cycling Hall of Fame award on her mother’s behalf.
