Whatever happpened to Tim Gould?
Barry Clark & Caroline Alexander can be added to the where now list?
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.Posted 5 years agocows_in_carsMember
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!Posted 5 years agotangMember
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.Posted 5 years ago
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.MrSparkleMember
I must say I used to have a bit of a crush on Sally Hibberd…Posted 5 years ago
Seeing as we are off down memory lane – check this:
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…..Posted 5 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
OK, so names from yesteryear:
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)
Chipps would probably know and I think Nick Craig is probably still in touch with Tim Gould.Posted 5 years agoandrewniMember

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… mmmPosted 5 years ago
