RJ Says: 1985 LA Coliseum Supercross video – part 1
Where supercross started – the fabled Los Angeles Coliseum in 1972. This video is from 1985 at the L. A. Coliseum Supercross.
This article was originally published on July 14 of last year. I was looking at the video as I’m working on part II, and thought I’d share it with again.
In this video, for better or worse, you’ll see a lot of me (I’m number 5 on a Yamaha). But in the second video that’s coming, you’ll see a lot more of my friends in the race like David Bailey, Bob Hannah, Jeff Ward, Goat Breker, Broc Glover, Ron Lechien, Johnny O’Mara, and others.
I think in 1985, we ran two ‘main events’ at each supercross. Part of what you see here (if my memory is correct) is me winning the first ‘main event’. Ron Lechien won the second ‘main event’. It’s quite different now to hear the sound of the two-strokes. It’s pretty old school now …
Hope you enjoy the video …
