Cycling has a long tradition in England - not only because, with James Moore, a Briton is considered the winner of the first public cycling race in Paris in 1868. Names like Tom Simpson, Robert Miller, Mark Cavendish, Christopher Fromme or the great Sir Bradley Wiggins are just a few examples of the island's outstanding racing cyclists. Another great example of the British bicycle tradition is Raleigh. Bicycles have been built in venerable Nottingham since 1887 and Raleigh is still one of the most famous bicycle brands around the world. Especially in the 1970s and 1980s, the Dutchman Joop Zoetemelk and his Raleigh even won the only overall victory ever on a British bike at the Tour de France. As an impressive representative of British cycling, the Professional MK2 is convincing. It is based, very British, on Reynolds' noble 531 tubing. A highlight was the then new Shimano 600 gears in the strikingly decorated arabesque design with which the Japanese blew to attack the top dog Campagnolo.
