An absolute MUST listen for any moto head. Matthes and Weege breakdown one of the most wild SX seasons of all time, and even get direct interviews with guys from that season like Bradshaw and Chicken.

I was born in 1983, so I didn't start following the pro series until later in the mid 90s. I've gotten to know all the riders, their personalities and the story lines from the decades before my interest in the sport, but this podcast does an amazing job of tying it all together for anyone who didn't live through it; and is some killer blast from the past bench racing for those who did. Kudos as always to PulpMX for yet another stellar addition to the national archives of moto history!

One of the best podcasts ever!! Throttle For The Gold was epic. Love Steve and Weege's passion for this season. Agreed, a must listen. Hope they do more. Would love to hear a pod on 97 SX!

I agree, this was very good.

It was an awesome season with a lot of inconsistent results and a "real" deep field. Factory teams fielded more than 1 or 2 riders, lots of hungry rookies and some vet guys plus a rider from France the fans had to learn to accept.

Enjoyed the podcast too. I'll never forget that holdeshot Bradshaw pulled at Anaheim. Watched a few of those races again this weekend and yes, a slower pace (almost Endurocross like), but the racing was epic!

As pointed out in this Vital thread, 8 guys within 80 points after an 18 race season!

I recently watched a lot of the races from the late 80’s to the mid 00’s. Since the late 80’s early 90’s was my era with my great heroes like Johnson, Bayle, Bradshaw, Cooper and so on, I really do love watching those races.

Imagine Bayle in practice dnf’ed three races in 90’ and still almost won the championship. He’s easily one of the most talented MX’ers inte history of the sport. He retire at the age of 23, or close to it, with two GP titles, one SX title, one 250 National title and a 500 national title. Pretty bad ass ?
