We'll be celebrating the great man's World Championships victory 50 years on, with unseen photos and memorabilia on exhibition at the Manchester Rapha Cycle Club

British cycling clothing brand Rapha and Cycling Weekly are proud to present a free exhibition for cycling fans starting this September, celebrating half-a-century since one of Britain’s greatest ever riders, Tom Simpson, took victory at the 1965 World Championships.

The exhibition, entitled ‘1965: Tom Simpson’s Golden Year’, will feature unseen photos and memorabilia from the life of Simpson at the Rapha Cycle Club in Manchester from September 17 to November 1.

TSGY-TwitterThe exhibition will run completely free for its duration, but there’ll be a special launch night on September 17 with a panel of guest speakers. Simpson’s nephew, Chris Sidwells will be on the panel, as well as former pro Barry Hoban who rode with Simpson, who will give insights on the man.

The launch event is also free, and you can secure your spot for what will be a special night at the Rapha club by making sure you RSVP on the following link.
