I've been digging around in my archives and found a few interesting cuttings and photos that have brought back the memories of when Norton were pretty much unbeatable on the 'cross scene (at least in 1984 anyway!)

Mick Stenton-not sure when or where,
I think that is Mike Johnson from Coalville behind
Matt Rigby at the madison in the Gilbert's back garden!

David Beresford no idea where or when?
