David Cordle writes for Trials Guru:

It is with much sadness that we must announce the passing of former Eastern Centre and Norfolk & Suffolk group champion, Eddie Cordle at the age of 71 at the beginning of April.

Eddie was a former supported rider on James, Cotton, Montesa and Fantic Motor Cycles and was a member of Ipswich M.C.C.

He rode throughout the sixties and seventies, and one of his most proudest achievements was to get an equal best day with Mick Andrews at the Scottish Six Days Trial in 1971 and going on to take a special first class award at the end of the week.

He was also an accomplished scrambler and later went on to be a successful golfer. Eddie Cordle will be greatly missed by all.
