TOPIC: The Sweat of the Gods

The Sweat of the Gods 1 year 9 months ago #8549

Having read an exchange between BigJeff and AL 'Napoleon' Bridges I bought a copy of The Sweat of the Gods to read where we got our club name from. I thought it was something to do its AL's fondness for Italian red wine. Now I know where the name Polocini comes from, his place in cycle racing history and why we are called Polocini Test Team.

Much respect to Herr Bridges. He may have one or two failings but he's gone up in my standing by naming us as he did. Honour before untruth, pride before riches. The quiet first who because of us won't be forgotten.

Ladies and gentlemen of PTT, wear your Spotties with even more pride than before. You are a lifetime member.

We truly are the first amongst equals.
