In October 1983 the ISDE was in Wales. As a result lots of European riders came over to compete in the Welsh two day trial (enduro) to get a feel for the terain. That year i was riding a XR500 and to my suprise found that i was in the same minute as Gerrit Wolsink, on the start line we had a few words and he said i will follow you. That lasted untill we hit the first off road section, and i never saw him again all day.
