There's an interview with him HERE, for anyone curious.  He was trials world Champion in 1980 and 1981, on a Montesa

So, is it confirmed that UK has passed? If so he would have only been in his mid sixties I think, that's too early and very sad.

His results that I can see are fairly impressive before and after he became World Champ in 1980.

2nd 1974. (European Championship, before World Title status) 

2nd 1977. (World Championship).

3rd 1979. WC

1st 1980. WC

2nd 1981. WC

The word 'legend' is bandied about as freely as the word 'celebrity' these days, I think we can safely use the word 'legend' in this man's case......

Looks like you're right.  I had a clear memory of his having won - perhaps it was best foreign rider that year.

Thanks for that. A good read, as is a lot of stuff on that site.
