Hutchinson tyres was actually a co-sponsor of the Falcon Racing Team of the mid 1980’s

You can search the cycling archives using the keyword Falcon and it brings up all of the teams that raced under that banner, and lists all of the riders and managers.

You can also search by rider name, but nothing comes up for Hutchinson in the 1980’s.

Next time I catch up with Brian Sandy I'll ask him if he recalls anyone by that name. He rode for Falcon in 1968.

According to the internet the team was called 'Falcon - Hutchinson' in 1986. No rider of that name though.
I need to consult my 1980's 'Winning' magazines (in the attic) to be absolutely certain though....
