Product description

Mud-splattered, rain-soaked and out for glory - this is the story of a dramatic season of spectacular motocross, packed with action, incident and controversy.

Britain's David Thorpe was out to score a hat trick of 500cc World Championship titles as the best motocross riders on Earth gathered in Spain for the first of 12 adrenalin-powered rounds. However, after a sparkling start, 1985 and 1986 champ Thorpe's title tilt was thrown into doubt when he left the Scandinavian races winless.

Arch-rival Georges Jobe, the two-times 250cc World Champion, emerged as a genuine title challenger.

At the halfway point Thorpe's season was ruined by an arm-breaking crash that left him unable to mount a real defence of his world crown. It looked like Jobe would take the title unchallenged, but a new British challenger emerged - Kurt Nicoll.

Featuring Jobe, Thorpe, Nicoll, Lungqvist, Martens and more!

Nicoll won the opening race of the British Grand Prix in front of 35,000 fans and maintained his amazing form to take the fight to Belgium's Jobe. With just two rounds left, Nicoll had a slim shot at the championship, but his hopes were dashed by a race-ending crash in Luxembourg - allowing Jobe to take his first 500c World Championship with one round to spare.

The thrills, spills and tension of an amazing season are captured in three hours of highlights, available on DVD for the first time. Awesome race footage and interviews with leading competitors put you at the heart of the action as the drama unfolds.
