Off-Road Giants!: Heroes of 1960s Motorcycle Sport
A fascinating and nostalgic compilation of rider profiles written over a three year period, which originally appeared in Classic Motorcycle magazine, and is now accompanied by a new set of over 100 photographs. All of the riders featured became top achievers in their field, although, for some, it was their first interview. During the 1950s and 60s, scrambling especially drew huge crowds to meetings all across the country, and, thanks to TV coverage such as BBC Grandstand Trophy, and ITV's World of Sport, many of the competitors featured in this book became household names. Each chapter includes the competition years of the riders, and also gives an overview of their careers, and conveys their enthusiasm for the sport.

A very good book that covers motocross and trials riders in England during the 50s and 60s. The onlyforeigner is American Bud Ekins. There has been plenty in print about more famous star riders but this great book covers those at one level below the world championship. A good buy if you're interestedin such history. ...
