1971...IOM,Great Britian...OSSA 250...Gold
1972...Czechoslovakia...OSSA 250...Silver
1973...Massachusetts, USA...OSSA 250...Bronze
1974...Italy...OSSA 250...Bronze I think, but I have forgotten

My two big disappointments were 1972 and 1973.  I lost my gold on
the last day in Czecho, only two checks from the finish.  In my home
state of Massachusetts in the next year I broke a chain in a special
test, otherwise I held the gold schedule all week.  I have great
memories of that ride, mostly on trails that I had ridden before.
Malcolm Smith and I were only a minute or two apart, and we saw a
lot of each other that week.
