WIRRAL legend Chris Boardman has loaned several items from his medal-winning and record-breaking career to the new Museum of Liverpool.
The Olympic gold medallist, from Hoylake, handed over his famous self-modified Lotus Sport super bike, his first Tour de France yellow jersey from 1994, and the piece of Manchester Velodrome he crossed when he smashed the world hour record for the second time in 1996.
These pieces of British sporting history will be on display when the museum opens next year.
They will be part of a gallery celebrating Liverpool’s creativity and sporting achievement, alongside Kirkby-born John Conteh’s boxing gloves, boots and WBC title belt.
Chris said: “It is great to be part of this fantastic project.
“The building already looks very striking and I cannot wait to see inside when it opens.
“The achievements of Liverpool and its people are a massive inspiration to many, including myself, and our sporting success is just one part of the city’s heritage.
