Arthur Linton

Arthur Vincent Linton (28 November 1868 – 23 July 1896) was a British road bicycle racer. He is best known for winning the Bordeaux–Paris road race in 1896 and for breaking the world one-hour unpaced cycling record. His death just two months after the 1896 Bordeaux–Paris is steeped in controversy with some commentators speculating that his demise was caused by doping.
