Motorcycle Magic is an entertaining round-up of three very different motorbike events from 1983. Memorable European races are shown, along with tips on trial riding like a champion.
The 1983 World Ice-Racing Championship semi-final in Holland provides plenty of thrilling race action. Ice racing is similar to speedway with a series of heats run over a 400 metre speed skating track. Spikes screwed into the tyres mean that the riders can corner at enormous speed laid over almost horizontally as the spikes grip. Despite the obvious danger the racing is very close.
Speed, skill and sheer strength are needed for the British round of the 1983 World Sidecar Motocross Championship. The two heats are full of action, with crazy scenes as the course rapidly turns into a quagmire.
The action continues with highlights from the 1983 World Trials Championship (Swiss Round). Here, seemingly impossible terrain is tackled with skill and artistry by the world's best riders with the stunning Swiss Alps as a backdrop.
Also, there is an extensive skills section by World Trials Champion Eddy Lejeune as he demonstrates his truly outstanding riding ability. See dramatic descents, rock-hopping, vertical climbs and other magical motorcycling techniques and learn how it's done!
