The late 1970’s through to the mid 1980’s was without doubt one of the greatest periods in the history of Motocross.

The riders alone were something really special with the likes of DeCoster, Mikkola, Lackey, Wolsink, Noyce, Malherbe, Carlqvist, Vromans, Geboers and Thorpe, to name but a few.

While in the USA, you had Hannah, DiStefano, Sun, Glover, Bell, Weinert, Barnett, Howerton ... the list goes on.

And to top it all off, it was the 2-stroke era where there was this surge of machine development that moved on at an incredible rate.

This new editorial effort by Adrian Copping follows Scrambled Guppy, a humorous book about the beginnings of Adie's riding career, the journey from debut to achieving his first victory.

All seasons from 1977 to 1986, the competitors, his good and bad finishes, the crashes and the accounts of some of the bikes that he rode (CZ 250, CZ 380, Honda CR 250 Red Rocket, YZ 250H, KTM GS350, Jawa 500 Speedway, YZ 250L, Husky CR 500 2-stroke and more).

Also, there’s his time in Enduro’s, having a go at Speedway and even working on a film location with the great Dave Bickers, and then back to motocross again.

It's a madcap journey that will bring back fond memories to all dirt bike fans!
