Funeral for 1950s international Dennis Tarr

Former British  international Dennis Tarr, a star of the 1950s and 1960s,  died over Christmas. He was 72. Tarr won many big British races, including the 1962 London to Holyhead, at 265 miles, the longest single-day road race in the UK.

The Condor Mackeson independent (semi-pro) was  a member of the London club, De Laune CC. The club’s website proudly proclaims that Tarr  still holds tandem track records with Alan Jackson, set in 1957.
