...that showed the LA Coliseum race where Guy Cooper (15, Honda) (edit) ALMOST beat RJ in the main. There were several other segments that showed enduro/Baja stuff too. I used to watch this over and over as a kid and I need it in my collection! Hoping you guys might be able to help with the title!

Thanks
David

Rick Johnson, Profile of a Champion has that race on it. Not sure what video you're talking about though.

The race you're looking for is the 1987 LA Coliseum Supercross.

Cooper didn't beat RJ, he lead until the final lap, RJ was down in the first turn and passed Cooper twice on the last lap (RJ tipped over).

Yes! That’s the one...I was really young then, but after I posted this I thought I had the winner wrong.

It could be this??? I don't have a VHS to watch it and I haven't seen it since probably the early 90s, but i remember it has some footage of that 87 LA SX, some muddy 88 Golden State National, and some Desert (Baja) segments, plus maybe some Speedway racing. But most importantly a bad ass 80s rock soundtrack.Photo

Holy shit, RJ's leg gets sucked into that guy's back wheel in the first turn crash. Looked painful.
This race is really awesome- LMAO "Ricky Johnson Superman of California, San Diego" He's ridiculously fast in this one, for the time period.

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

I'm not attached to it, that's a ridiculous price on etsy. I see old mx crap on there sometimes that's way overpriced. We watched Winners Take All and Matazattack all the time but not this Daredevil video.

That's a good video from the 80's, but the real classic is Superstars of Motocross featuring 'Mike' Kessler and 'Davie' Coombs battling in Arenacross, and also expert motogear modeling by 'Davie' as he demonstrated the equipment that carried him to a top 10 finish in Daytona 1985. lol

That race (1987 LA Coliseum) is on the "World's Greatest Supercross Races" dvd. I think you can get it from Amazon or ebay. This dvd contains the same races as the old "On Two Wheels" vhs tape set that Motovideo sold years ago.
