Pic of the day: Robert Millar on The Mound, 1989

Robert Millar, The Mound, Edinburgh 1988

Another pic of the 1989 Edinburgh race featuring Scotland and Britain’s greatest ever cyclist. The castle rock is on the left and the famous New Town can be seen behind. For those that don’t know, The Mound is a hill that climb’s up from the main shopping street, Princes’ Street, up to the Old Town. As seen with the Edinburgh Nocturne, the centre of town is a fantastic setting for crit racing. I know little more about the race pictured here but seemingly it was a Kellogg’s criterium.
