Dream Team : Bob Wiles
I happened across your site and saw the dream teams feature, particularly
Mark Wyver's Canterbury dream team. I was a Crusaders supporter from 1968
to about 1973. My Canterbury dream team would look like this;
Never saw him race but his points record speaks for itself.
Quick and fearless, would have a go at anyone.
A tough racer. Led from the front and held the team
together following the loss of a big chunk of the 1970 league winning side.
A real tryer and quite a stylist. Developed a leg-trailing
style during 1969 that was a particular crowd pleaser.
A class act. Topped the Division 2 averages with 10.46 in
1970. Always looked and performed like a junior Ivan Mauger. Injury ended
his career early.
No Canterbury team would be complete without Barney.
Or without 'Hurricane'
