Arthur Percival (added on 21.3.69) - Arthur was born a Kiwi. I believe he joined the club in the 50s and was one of a band of 'constant' workers who helped build the Camperdown velodrome eventhough he was about 70 years old at the time. Up to the 1970s, Arthur was considered one of the oldest competitive riders in the DHBC.

Lionel Cox (1930-2010) - Lionel needs no introduction. He is the only club member to have won an Olympic gold medal. He has been with the club since 1956 and was a regular at track training.

He acted as 'Marshall for the Union' for many years attending as a delegate to Council meetings. He had a great interest in track racing and could be seen at Tempe velodrome regularly in his later years.
