    David Baker was diagnosed with some weird heart issue and was told to stop biking immediately. I thought Tim was a postie, but not about either for a very long time.

    Barry Clark & Caroline Alexander can be added to the where now list?

    Maybe a good feature for a future mag?

    Been out of touch for a while but what about Stuart Marshall?

    Tim is alive and well and living somewhere near Matlock. He is a postie.

    David Baker I think is now a gardner of some description having also run a cafe.

    Barrie is an electrician in Barrow in Furness.

    No idea on Wilma (Caroline) sorry.

    Barrie Clarke is married to former MTB XC pro Sue Thomas, they live somewhere in the western lake District. Barrie was running a guiding/training/coaching business at one point, not sure if he still is. Sue was a regular on the enduro race scene for a while after Barrie retired from racing but again, not seen her in a while.

    When the North Face Trail opened at Grizedale, Sue rode the “official” first lap (OK, the trail had been open a few weeks but it had an opening launch publicity thing). Christ she was quick, I was right on the limit keeping up with her.

    Last time I did the Helvellyn Triathlon a couple of years back, Barrie Clark was walking up the valley past Glenridding Mines YHA as I came down on the run…not sure if he was there supporting someone. Said hello when I recognised him.

    Barrie Clarke was at a cross race I did a couple of years ago in Rossendale. He seemed in good shape.
    Fred Salmon was another hot shot from the past. Last seen appearing naked part way round the Three Peaks course to the amusement of Nick Craig!

    There is a Tim Gould biography coming out some time soonish apparently. Spoke to Tim Gould at a BMBF race years ago, really lovely guy, happy to chat away to me despite me obviously being a star struck school boy!

    I won a Tim Gould autographed crash helmet at a Grundig World Cup race raffle.

    Cool, one of my save in a fire items would be my MTB racing by Tim Gould and Simon Burney that Tim signed when I met him.

    Apparently Tim won the postman’s cyclocross championships a while ago after a number after he finished pro racing, apparently of the back of no training!

    The only thing I saved from my Junior days. Massive signed, by Paul Hinton, poster. I got him to come to my school and give a talk, got to ride his team bikes! Really nice guy.
    Saw Tim G win the nationals at Malvern. A fantastic hot dusty weekend of broken flexstems, tioga disc drives, pasta, lake jumping and bula everywhere. All my faves riding (jmc, hemming, lazenby as a junior the dude with the tash styling the bomb hole!) and iirc the dogsbollox was unveiled.

    Tim’s brother runs Zepnat cycles in Matlock. I heard he lives somewhere around Crich now.

    Definitely some mileage in a “where are they now? article in the mag, I reckon

    I seem to recall the cycling coverage in the Matlock Mercury over the winter mentioned some “Goulds” in the junior events – presumably the next part of the dynasty coming through…..

    Retro! ๐Ÿ™‚

    OK, so names from yesteryear:
    Tim Gould
    David Baker
    Caroline Alexander
    Fred Salmon (now works in Bike Factory, a bike shop in Whaley Bridge, he’s as mad a box of frogs)
    Dave Hemming (last I heard he was working in America)

    who else?

    Chipps would probably know and I think Nick Craig is probably still in touch with Tim Gould.

    Dave Hemming (last I heard he was working in America)

    Isn’t Dave Hemming the rider on the Pivot bikes advert?

    There was Paul Lasenby who rode for Marin.

    PeeWee Hemming is doing marketing stuff, including the bike sector, living in Portland, Oregon, last time I heard.

    Hemming is running a dog-walking business with his better half, he still rides his bike a lot though, racin and that

    had a few pints with him down the local a month or so ago, he hasn’t changed

    I stand corrected! ๐Ÿ™‚

    to be fair, you have to be fast to keep up with what Hemming’s doing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    i remember seeing David Baker and John Tomac at the Plymouth Grundigs, I asked for Tomac’s autograph and he cycled off out of Newnham Park for a warm up.

    Then met Julie Furtardo in the Virgin Megastore on the way home.

    Saw Caroline Alexander training near Hawkshead once tried to catch up to say hi, but she was Tooo Fast… boyhood pin up… mmm
