Rare Footage from 1976 Kawasaki BMX Race at Saddleback Park. In 2011, Producer and Director Todd Huffman of "The Motocross Files" acquired reels of lost footage from the 1976 motocross series shot by a young filmmaker from San Diego named Ray Baum. The footage had never been edited into anything so after transferring thousands of feet of film into a digital format, hidden in all the wonderful motocross footage was six minutes from this BMX race.
GT Bicycles presents 4130 1993, Eddie Roman produced/directed. Twenty eight minutes of racing (lots of Gary Ellis and Charles Townsend), flatland, halfpipes/parks and trails. Soundtrack is a bunch of indie/underground metal, punk and alternative rock. I touched up the picture a little bit in FCPX and remastered the audio as well using Soundtrack Pro. The tracking goes a bit wonky at the very end, but it's nothing catastrophic.
