Retro motocross racing: For men who play like boys
David plays hard and seems to have a never ending agenda for good times. He likes to compete in master's events both on and off road...he's also active in club road racing.
I have enjoyed the resurgence of vintage motocross racing. The equipment is not only fun to ride, it triggers memories from yesteryear, when I, for one, was a bit more courageous. Who can forget the original silver-tanked Elsinores and the advent of MX super star Marty Smith?
Maybe it's the outcome of so many years gone by, but my recollection of those times is bigger than life. Factory riders on their flying machines.
Thanks to individuals like David and others like him, who keep those dreams alive through retro MX racing. You can't really know where you're going, unless you know where you've been.
