Derek Harrison ???

Well Chris, that's the only source I can find with that information. Importantly, Wikipedia which is normally up to date doesn't have notice of passing. Last update was four months ago but I'd have thought something like that would have been posted. Also surprising that nothing been reported via cycling weekly? (haven't read the Comic for about 14 years so wouldn't know anyway). Let's hope for the best.

Along with Don Harrison (I think not related) Derek's name was mentioned in a conversation last night, and I've finally found the report linked below.

Like me, older members will remember, have known and even raced with or against a lot of the names mentioned in the report. Unfortunately I never met Derek as he was in Manchester then France when I first came to Birmingham. But I knew of him and his pedigree.
