Is that Ricky Johnson carrying Steer Horns as a trophy at time 47:48???

This is a gem I found searching for vintage moto from my area. 1987 Motocross National Denver, CO. Filmed from the perspective of a family enjoying a day at the nationals. I loved every minute of this.. Everything from the mullets and trucker hats to the racing coverage. towards the end of the videos he gets close-ups of factory riders "Bailey", ,"Ward", "Stanton", and alot of others signing autograph right out of the back of small trailers. Good quality for an old video. Maybe filmed on beta cam.

That was a great watch !! Fairly sure that was RJ, along with Ward, Leichen ? and Hannah at the end. Crazy how approachable they were, and just hang'n out of the back of a box truck. I couldn't help but laugh at the guy's wearing short shorts, glad that trend is over cause I was guilty of that also. Thanks for the vid M_G.


There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.
