Alright :)

Does any body know who organised these races?

Better yet - do you know of any one who kept records of races?

Thanks

Edinburgh bike coop organised a series and the downhill at innerleithen, When I contacted Ged about them he pointed me towards the "The Bicycle Works" as John and Andrew that run it had more involvement.

Was this the ill fated Clockwork series the failure of which led to the formation of the Scottish Downhill Association (SDA)
