    Yeah, I saw him at the old Sunnyvale PAL track racing a Bultaco. He stomped everybody and he was about 14. He was awesome. Saw him at Sand Hill Ranch a couple times too and later at the Oakland Coliseum on a Maico

    RIP Magoo... :cry

    Hopefully that made it a little easier to ride while they were at it so he can hang in there for the end of the race and not fade.

    Hansen/Ellis/Karsmakers.

    I'm not a big fan of Hansen but he sure gets around. I don't dislike him but there is just something about him. Wonder how much money a guy like him made he certainly seems to be on easy street but who knows.

    Jimmy Ellis looks like a million bucks. I am a big fan of him and he used to freaking haul ass.

    I wonder how many people here are aware of Pierre Karsmakers and the whole story about him. For those who aren't he was a Dutch rider and while all the euro's used to come over here after the world championship series and mostly dust the american riders in the early 70's they all headed home before the winter and weren't seen again until after the next WC series in the spring/summer. Pierre Karsmakers came and rode OUR national series here in like 73/74 and the first year there was a fair amount of "he's not allowed to do that!!!" and I believe even the AMA got involved and made him somehow ineligible for the title though he could race. Or something like that. :gerg


    He stayed for a few years, I believe he won a SX title, such as it was in circa 1975. He was also one of the riders in the great film One Chance to Win which documents Weinerts 500 National Championship run circa 1975. It came down to the last race (short series maybe 6-8 races) and about 5 guys had a shot at the title. Weinert, Stackable, Lackey, Tony D, and I believe Karsmakers, though per the film Lackey was more focused on making sure Weinert won and Karsmakers didn't. :wink: :lol3

    Anyway the whole concept of the euro's (PK) not being eligible seems pretty bizarre 40 years later.

    Jimmy Ellis. :super

    Thanks for the heads-up on this, it looks similar to The Moto - Inside the Outdoors series, which was pretty good (well, at least season one).

    I've set the DVR to record Sunday at Noon, lets see if the idiots at our CBS affiliate preempt it to show some local programming garbage.

    On another note, Direct TV is showing (at really odd hours) The Moto Files; first one will be the episode covering Jeff Stanton. Use the guide / search for motorcycle & it will show up. Program accordingly.

    As far as I am concerned, Yamahas should still be yellow & black!

    My daughter is friends with him, I think they may have even dated but she wouldn't tell me that. I more like the RD and TC type of rider. She says he is a real nice guy, on the shy side.

    Sounds like he has some dough. Guess winning gold at X Games will do that.

    They are talking about Hansen's father. SX champion back in the early eighties.
