GREAT DOCUMENTARY ON TWO-TIME 500 WORLD MOTOCROSS CHAMPION BILL NILSSON
The world of a professional motocross race was diametrically opposed to what it looks like today—no airline tickets, fancy hotels, 18-wheel semi-trucks, carpeted pits or even much in the way of suspension travel. Just hard men racing long motos on tracks that today’s riders would refuse to ride on. It was a different world, but in many ways almost identical to the sport we know today. See what it was like to be a two-time 500 World Champion back in 1964. And if you think that Justin Barcia and Jason Anderson ride aggressively, you should know that Bill Nilsson had a reputation 60 years ago for doing whatever it took to make a pass. How tough was Bill Nilsson? He was fired from BSA because I was a “dirty” rider.
