Dream Team : Brian Dench

I am a long term Wolverhampton supporter since 1961. I was taken in the early fifties but was too young to remember it well.

Olsen
Mauger

Ole Olsen
Probably the most exciting Wolves rider I ever saw. Must be commended for his part in the best World Championship Final at Wembley in 1981.

Ove Fundin
Lucky enough to see Ove at his best in the days of the Internationale at Wimbledon. Managed to win the world championship with both legs in metal cages because of injuries.

Tommy Sweetman and Vic Ridgeon
Not the best riders but a fantastic pair at team riding. Who can forget seeing these two ride side by side for 4 laps round Wolverhampton?

Peter Jarman
Known as the Lemon Juice Kid because of his initials. PLJ. Favourite trick was to miss the gate deliberately and then overtake all 3 other riders around the first bend. Finally cured when Ron Mountford waited for him and put him under the fence.

Peter Craven
What a fantastic rider. He could go round the corner at an angle that would be considered impossible in any other sport.

Ivan Mauger
My wife's choice because of his looks. My choice because of his skill. When Ivan, Peter, Ole and Ove won the championship you had to beat everybody. The modern champion could theoretically win without winning a single race. Lets go back to the old way.
