Cool. Videos from this era always make me giggle at the claims the DT1 was something new😉
They also morn the loss of stuff like being "allowed" to ride in the local gravel pit 😞

Makes me wonder if it's really better now. Surely the bikes are but otherwise not so sure. Thanks for the video.

This was great to watch  ;D

I think the track at the start was Wakes Colne, I rode there a lot in my youth.
I loved riding there, the best bit was the down hill jumps into right hand banked bends.
And the bomb hole great memories thanks for posting this.

This is Wakes Colne now.

It's the same field but it's a very different track now I wonder what those guys would have made of table tops
and doubles.
