Desert Racing Retrospective w/ Bruce Brown....

California

Don't know if you guys have seen this or not, but it's pretty cool footage from legendary documentary film maker Bruce Brown.  I always loved working on films with Bruce and his son Dana.  Good times.  That family has some of the best retro extreme sports footage around.

 

If you love racing desert and haven't seen this footage, you should check it out.  Cool stuff.  I think you may recognize some of these trails.  Others are long gone.  Lots of legends here.  What a hoot watching those old heavy 4 strokes.  JN was on a 360 Husky though.....the era of change just starting.

 

Highlights for me : the helmet cam.  Must be one of the first.  Looks like it weighs 15 lbs.  LOL  And the hair on those chicks.  Woohooo.  Very Nancy Sinatra.  Plus seeing old favorite areas....

 

Hope you guys enjoy it.  If link doesn't work, try.......

Bummer.  Don't know what's up with youtube as of late, but I've noticed that too.  When I just clicked on it, I got the same message, but putting in the link directly into my browser, no problem.  Maybe its a TT auto link thing....,.
