I am sure that you will all be as shocked and stunned and as angered as us to hear the news that our friend Tony Goldney was attacked last night whilst out cycling. We understand that he has injuries to his face and we are still awaiting further news from Sue.

I am sure that you will join with us in wishing Tony a speedy recovery.

Just had a long chat to Sue.

Basically, Tony was on his way home from work at about 6pm on a cycle path that is a bit remote from the road. 3 youths blocked his path, she can only surmise that he told them in no uncertain terms to let him pass. They pushed him off his bike and set about him kicking him in the head and face, then left him for dead.

Luckily there was a female witness dog walker, so he wasn’t there for long. He was unconscious. The last thing he remembers is being knocked off his bike.

The police have 2 youths in custody. They caught one of them with what they believe to be Tony’s bike. The Police believe the same 3 attacked another man later on that night, although that person wasn’t badly hurt.

Tony was wearing a cycle helmet, which Sue believes really helped to protect his head, as all his injuries were to his face. He has had a CT scan etc and they don’t believe there is any brain damage. His face is so swollen there is barely any resemblance to the Tony we know, and he can’t open his eyes at the moment. When they open his eyes for him he can see, and eye tests were ok. He has multiple facial fractures, although Sue is not sure where yet, but thinks one cheek bone may be shattered.

When I spoke to Sue just now she was following the ambulance transferring him to a special unit at Luton & Dunstable Hospital.

Latest news from Sue to Les (whose computer is not working ) to me is that Tony is fairly cheerful and is having some facial reconstruction and if all goes well be home in a couple of days .

Typically Tony said he was glad it didn't happen before Sweden.

Certainly doesn't encourage you to use a push bike in Milton Keynes to keep fit does it?

It seemed only a matter of time before any of us knew someone who would be a victim of gang thuggery.

I hope Tony recovers soon and doesn't remain mentally scarred by the experience.

These scum need a bit of Tony Martin's law.

This is not a bloke on a bike , It is our National F2 Champion and our world Champion.

If these people have been caught the judge needs to be aware and deal with them accordingly.

Sue I hope you are ok and wish Tony well

Thinking of you both

I am extreamly shocked about this Tony.....

As you might remember I was attacked after my daughter was attacked and although one of the girls in the gang filmed both attacks they have got cleam away with it! I was warned the Police would not do anything and they were right!

I also got attacked by a dad, his wife and their 3 boys whilst outside work a few weeks ago, my colleagues called 999 and the Police have still not bothered to turn up!!

You are a good guy Tony and I will be thinking of you and Sue, all the very best to you both.

Tony underwent facial surgery tonight on both cheek bones and jaw bone and the surgery went well, although one of the cheek bones was described as being like a jigsaw puzzle. Sue is hopeful that she can take him home on Sunday afternoon.

Mike has now arrived home from Florida but is having problems with his PC so said I would put this message on for him.

Sue amd Tony.

Mike & family send there best wishes and regards. Like everyone they are appalled at the attack which has happened. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_eek.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_sad.gif

Why is it that these kind of thing only happen to the good guys and never the ar%&*@&s of this world. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_mad.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_mad.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_twisted.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_twisted.gif

Get well soon Champ and get yourself right to defend your titles or I might have to enter F2 and that would only lower the standard. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif

Tony was wearing a cycle helmet, which Sue believes really helped to protect his head, as all his injuries were to his face. He has had a CT scan etc and they don’t believe there is any brain damage.

I am so glad to have read you've had a CT scan Tony, I know only to well what a blow to the head can do and feared the worst until hearing you'd had some decent care. Any chance you can persuade them to give you an MRI? It's a hell of a lot more detailed.

All the same Tony; take it VERY easy for a while & report anything out of the ordinary (especially behaviour) to your doctor. Remember, your bones & face can heal easily enough, the brain is a whole different matter. I can only thankgod you were wearing a helmet.

As for the little ~@@~@&^%$, don't hold your breath, even if the CPS do prosecute, Judges live in a politically correct world where jail is a 'bad thing'.

Want to make sure they you get justice?

Start by letting the local papers know that a "WORLD CHAMPION attacked by scum", with any luck one of the nationals will pick it up. Then the CPS and lawcourts will give your case the attention it warrants.

Never underestimate the power of the press.

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery,

Jonathan Tall
