Remarkable is the word, a lot of mistruths were written about Obree, but the fact remains that he achieved what few could and did it his way, foregoing technical wizardy. Boardman & Obree shared a common path but had totally different approaches and Boardman would not have been as succesful without the spur that was Obree, in the end they both had their careers cut short by illness of one type or another but both true athletes.

Yes I would agree there both spurred on by each of their own obsessions.

It is astonishing that Obree managed to get his life back together after all that he has endured over the years, Strength of will and determination , A great example of human spirit.

I tip my hat to both of them

Regards
