A massive project that started quite some time before John’s death, has finally launched. The project, the brainchild of Little Peak Press duo Heather Dawe and Jo Allen, is a spinoff of their book project about the race.
As Heather and Jo interviewed John it became clear to them the depth and detail of John’s own archiving. His meticulous storing of press cuttings and photos over the years were way too good to leave in attic boxes, and with John’s permission, Heather and Jo started scanning and archiving the materials.
As with many of us, the race has got a special place in Heather and Jo’s hearts, and the dedicated work it’s taken to get to launch has been utterly impressive. We’re up to 1973 at the time of writing this!
Congratulations to both – and indeed thanks, from this ‘Peaks fanatic. Enjoy the 3 Peaks Cyclo-cross archive – below
