Biography

Anthony J Gowland, known as Tony Gowland (born 13 May 1945 in Hendon, London) is an English former competitive track cyclist, and a former six-day rider. He was a professional cyclist between 1968 and 1978.

Gowland was a talented track rider as an amateur before turning professional for Carlton, a subsidiary of Raleigh. Turning professional allowed him to ride the London Six, often called the Skol Six, in 1968. He signed his contract, with organiser Ron Webb, in the office of Cycling Weekly in Fleet Street, London. In 1971 he came second in London and won in Montreal, with Gianni Motta of Italy. In 1972 he won the London Six with the Belgian rider, Patrick Sercu.

In 1978 Gowland held a training session at Harlow for riders interested in riding six-day races. They were called the Tony Gowland Master Class and almost all the Harlow club riders turned out.

Gowland lives in Bovingdon, Hertfordshire.
