Anyone remember this, put the best riders from each discipline and raced various types of racing in one day. Kind of the precursor to the Superbikers. Was cool to see Lawson on his TT bike in the xc race. Roesler did real good in the mx race. Should of had a trials section to really see who was the best all around peg artist.

That was way too cool. I'd never even heard of this race, much less seen video of it. Thanks for posting.

Was that Tripes on the Honda doing wheelies on the flat track behind Hannah?

"The thing about bruce jenner is that he really doesn't look anything like steve reeves or clark kent."

That statement is more true than ever now, lol.
