Racing Is Life: The Beryl Burton Story
For those that have heard the name but know very little about Beryl Burton, Beryl was a no nonsense Yorkshire tomboy who won the RTTC Best All Rounder 25 years in a row from 1959 until 1983. She was 7 times world champion in the 3,000 metre pursuit and on the road – all while being a mother and holding down jobs on fruit farms in West Yorkshire.
