And I'll second "One Man's Island", and third Dust to Glory. Both great flicks that make you just want to get out and RIDE!

I'd love to but I don't have the money for a spare bike, unfortunately not that mechanically inclined, out of shape, and don't know of any amateur MX tracks that offer lessons. Seriously though, it looks like a ton of fun.

Nice. Thanks for the suggestions. I will check out both "Dust to Glory" and "One Man's Island". I'll check to see if they are offered streaming anywhere.

Checked for 'One Mans Island' on Netfix, Hulu, and Amazon. No joy.

With the modern trend for many public libraries to maintain large DVD movie collections, you may be able to have your local library locate a copy of One Man's Island or other flick and do an interlibrary loan.

Back in the 80s even, I was able to track down obscure boatbuilding plans books through my library and even had one sent from a library in Enid, OK to here in central FL - for free.

Might be worth a try.

Not a bad idea. I always forget to check the library but they might be able to obtain a copy. Thanks.

Excellent idea... my wife works for the local library and was able to get me Ake Jonnson's book, The Technique of Motocross, from 1974. She had it shipped free from some library in Louisiana to the local branch here in Maryland.

What a woman !

Dana Brown is currently finishing up the next "On Any Sunday" movie. Should be released before year-end...

Bruce Brown said that Harvey Mushman provided the money to make the film.

He would have had it.
He took some heat from the studio suits for
racing on the weekends hence the "Harvey Mushman" moniker.
A friend of mine is the "Dirt Digger" (red and white striped vest) in a
cameo shot at the Elsinore Gran Prix. Told me years ago that Malcolm
was the most genuine guy out there. When I finally met him in 1997, I
found out he was right. Talented, too!
