Taken at Rowlands Castle green around 1964. John "JP" Pendleton was the founder of Southdown Velo which was formed from the Velo Club Noviomagus. Pete Gould was later the Managing Director of Moreys who sponsored the Isle of Wight's three day race for a number of years.

The Noviomagus jersey was based upon the Italian champion's jersey.
