Des Robinson

Posted: Tuesday 18th August 2020

We are sorry to announce that Des Robinson (brother of Brian Robinson) passed away on 10 December 2015, he would have been 88 on the 30th of December.

Derek Browne has attatched his (DR) palmares in his own handwriting, and adds that the bike in Readers Bikes is the bike he used between 1947 & 1950.  After that date, he rode on an Ellis – Briggs, of later manufacture.  If Des’s younger brother Brian, had had a sprint finish of the same calibre as his brothers, he would have won many more races during his career, one that springs to mind, is Milan Sanremo, where Brian finished 3rd, behind Poblet and Debruyne.
