    A legend and part of the all conquering (at the time ) Aces, along with Peter Collins.

    Wow, me and my mate used to go and watch him ride when the Aces were the best team around.
    Many times we would jump over the boards and grab his, Pete Collins and Soren Sjosten tearaways from their goggles.

    What a team we had back then.

    Never saw him but he was 'the name' in the press when Belle View was mentioned when I was a kid.
