  1. Ah, sad news indeed. I wasn’t aware he’d been ill, though still getting great results quite recently.

  2. Chris was my best friend at school and our friendship continued when we raced Moto cross together. Extremely modest but an excellent rider in both trials and later moto cross. I will miss him. Rest in peace buddy x. Jeff Wilson.
