Cuthbert is a big fan of penny farthings and from the age of 5 has competed in several major races around the world. He is yet to actually win a race but is convinced he can smell his victory just around the corner.
In 1974 he made front page news when, while racing in Monaco, his moustache blew into his eye resulting in a 10 man pile up. Cuthbert Clott is indeed a clot. Even mounting his farthing seems to be something he has yet to master and his unorthodox exercise techniques are particularly fun to watch when he is demonstrating them and getting people involved.
