A 2-up team sprint at the Revolution series, October 2007. Craig Maclean, Plowman Craven and Jason Kenny, Team GB: 31.719.

The photo, taken by John Allen (johnthescone on flickr), was originally blogged on Hipster Nascar, and elicited a response from Craig himself. Click through to Hipster Nascar or the flickr image page to read all about the spitting blood mystery.

Craig Maclean is 9th on my Top 10 Scottish cyclists of all time. After reading about him in Chris Hoy’s Autobiography, I’m thinking I should maybe have put him 8th above Mark Beaumont.
