Stories of Bike: The Jerkyls
A nicely edited film from Australia that does a good job of explaining my own attraction to racing flat track - racing a gang of mates for fun, sometimes at the back of the pack.
If I just had to sit in my van focussing on the next race or thinking about my gearing I wouldn't look forward to the racing half as much as I do when I know I'm going to have a laugh with a bunch of mates I met through racing but who now meet up when we're not at the the track. It's probably because a lot of these fellas are roughly the same age as me and got into racing when their youth was long gone.
By the way, this is what Aussies called dirt track, on knobblies, not traditional DT tryres. G
UPDATE: Read Andy Jerky;s story about racing in Sideburn 19.
