Pretty awesome. Please clue me in, is Debbie Evans a trials rider from years ago? I did see that she is in the AMA Hall of Fame.
Chances are you have seen her in a movie. IMDB lists her as having 333 films in which she performed stunts, often involving motorcycles.
Ha, I can do that
I've seen a vid of her doing that: riding up; getting into the headstand; getting down and riding away without a dab. Very impressive.
On the loop, at speed, after clipping a stump doesn't count .
How did you know?
Yes , Debbie rode trials .Debbie Evans is considered one of Hollywood's top stunt women. The writing was on the wall from the age of six when she started riding motorcycles in her hometown of Lakewood, California. By the age of nine she started competing in the sport of motorcycle trials. By 1976, she became the first woman to reach the rank of expert, successfully competing against the men. She was considered the best female observed trials rider in the United States, earning factory-backed sponsorship from Yamaha.
She also is married to U S trials champion Lane Leavitt . Three-time US motorcycle trial champion. Lane turned stuntman in 1980 on The Fall Guy (1981) TV series, doing a wheelie down the railing of a bridge.
