Who won 250 and 500 the same year?

Which rider has won both the 250cc and 500cc categories in GP the same year?
It was quite an achievement as the guy had to race the 250 and then get on the 500 and race again the same day! And he won both championships like that.
The correct answer must include the rider, year and the type of bikes
Pictures will give bonus points to the winner

PS: Come on this one isn't so hard!

Freddie was da bomb....

I still have my Spencer rep Arai in the cupboard and only stopped using it a few years ago.

He was an inspiration to be-spectacled nerds everywhere haha
(though he did wear contact lenses)

Has anyone been to the Freddie Spencer riding school in Las Vegas? I was wondering if was worth the $ to school with the champ.
