Endorsement Note from Paul Dimeo (University of Stirling)Paul Dimeo (University of Stirling) author of ĎA History of Drug Use In Sport 1876 Ė 1976í (Routledge), has written in regard to the public forum on Arthur Lintonís life held on 6 December at Cynon Valley Museum:
I am sorry to miss what Iím sure will be a wonderful occasion. I fully support the celebration of Arthurís life. Not only was he a world-class cyclist and a sporting hero, but it is tragic that his reputation has been tarnished by accusations of doping. I feel strongly that people who have repeated these claims without thinking about the evidence or the humanity of Arthur and his brothers should be ashamed of themselves.
On a more positive note the work to revive the memories of a great Welsh family should be applauded. I do hope the memorial (Blue Plaque) and book will serve as a fitting dedication to a great life
All the best
