Brian Crutcher The Authorised Biography

by Tom Wareham

Brian Crutcher The Authorised Biography Synopsis

Arguably the best English rider never to win a World Final, Brian Crutcher was truly brilliant and naturally gifted. The `Nipper' rode for Poole, Wembley, Southampton and England in the 1950s, competing against some of speedway's greatest ever riders, such as Ove Fundin and Barry Briggs. Often captaining his country, he is also one of the all-time top points scorers in World Finals, his best finish being a second place in 1954. This book not only gives an insight into the life of one of speedway's heroes, but also into the world of speedway itself during its heyday in the 1950s.
