Soens is best remembered as one of the greatest British cycling
coaches of all time. Due to his influential training methods he
helped win more British, Worlds and Olympic titles than any other
"During the early 1960s their frames were extremely
popular especially the track models. The models produced at the time
were the Campionissimo road frame, ‘55’ Time Trial Special,
Vigorelli Sprinters Frame and the Roma Pursuit light track frame.
Ron Spencer of the Warrington CC who was a very good time trialist
in the 60’s rode an Eddie Soens bike. There is Eddie Soens memorable
race run every year to honour his memory."
"My name is Bill Soens - 75 year old son of the late Eddie
Soens - and I was the frame builder. I opened the tiny business
Eddie Soens Cycles in late 1957, using my father's name since he
was particularly well known as the country's leading coach. I
also used the name "SoenSport". I built about 800 frames for
both domestic and export use."
