Now here’s a great little tale.
The Fijians did it tough in the 100-kilometre road team trial at the 1982 Commonwealth Games. While most contestants arrived with the latest sophisticated bikes to take up their start positions in Brisbane, the island team were a little more conventional in their approach.
They arrived with lights, bells, mudguards and pumps attached to their racing bikes! Well prepared, but perhaps a little overweight for the gruelling event. Mind you if the road race was in NSW the bell would have been rather handy…
