CLASSIC MOTOCROSS PHOTOS: JAROSLAV FALTA HAS SEEN IT ALL

JAROSLAVfalta52Jaroslav Falta.

Racing for the communist-controlled Czechoslovakian CZ team Jaroslav Falta has a different perspective on the sport than most riders. He missed the glory days of CZ dominance in the late ’60s and had to ride outdated early 1970s machinery against the might of the Japanese works bike (led by former CZ rider Joel Robert and Roger DeCoster). Then, he was a victim of Russian team tactics in 1974 that cost him a shot at the 250 World Championship. He did get to come to America to race and win the Los Angeles Coliseum Supercross in 1974.
