Adept as both a sprinter and a pursuit rider Trevor Bull represented England and Great Britain as an amateur until he turned professional in 1967. The high point of the Birmingham rider’s amateur career came with a bronze medal in the scratch race at the 1966 Commonwealth Games.
As a professional he found success at national level especially with the TI-Raleigh team but ironically is best known for a race he lost.
Matched in the final of the 1974 British sprint championship against the 54-year old former world champion Reg Harris, who was making an improbable comeback, he was outmanoeuvred by his opponent and lost in two straight rides. Bull was to gain revenge over Harris in the 1975 championship final.
After retiring he ran a successful bicycle business with fellow Olympian Mick Bennett.
