Footnotes

  • Norman Hill was born in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1939. He rode professionally from 1966-1973, sometimes as a privateer but also for several top flight teams including Geoffry Butler, Elsmar, Goldor, KRO and Falcon, winning the British Professional Sprint Championship in 1966, also winning 12 International Six Day races. During his professional career he met and married a Dutch podium girl called Harma. Later he moved to Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada, to manage and coach the Canadian National Cycle Team. He also ran a bicycle shop in downtown Vancouver and worked with Derek Bailey, who built racing, track and touring frames and forks in a workshop in Richmond, BC. When the shop shut at night, Norman Hill drove to Richmond to paint the frames. Sadly his hard work was not rewarded with enough sales and the business went bust, the remaining stock and premises were taken over by Rocky Mountain bicycles in 1983.
