This poem was sent to me by Chris our biggest Mercian fan who commissioned it from Willie Carton . He very kindly gave me permission to post it here for you all to read. I,m sure you agree with me its very good indeed. By the way check out Chris flicker site there is a link on this blog.

Thank you, Chris.


Born and bred in Derby, pride of the age
Famous in cycling on every stage
Great steel and chrome expertly built
Ride like a dream and finished with care
Just for a fast man to carve through the air
Sought after and dreamt about, with world wide esteem
Only those who ride Mercian know what I mean

Willie Carton, Feb. 09
