Biography

Alfred Fentiman was a pioneer racing cyclist in the early 1890’s placing in English Championships and setting at least one national record for the mile.

A dentist by profession, he set up a company manufacturing false teeth which presumably was successful enough to allow him to race motor-boats.

He raced his own boat but also regularly drove the boats of Howard, Lord de Walden whom he partnered in the 1908 Olympics. A month before the Games the pair, racing De Walden’s boats, had represented Great Britain in the Harmsworth Trophy races off Long Island, New York and had been defeated by the top American boat.
