    May 6 will mark the 50th anniversary of the most famous race in track history. Roger wore #41 that day. When SATCH talked to him, he said: "The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."

          I attended conferences where he (Sir Roger) was a speaker (a highly respected professor of Neurology), but never had a pleasure of meeting him personally.

            I got his autograph at the '94 Bannister dinner. However, unlike Satch, I can't claim to be a close personal friend...
