Out FRONT : British Motocross Champions 1960-1974 Paperback
by IAN BERRY
With a Foreword by none other than Jeff Smith, nine times a British Champion and twice World Champion, Out FRONT is a wonderful celebration of some of the best off-road racers there have ever been.
The photos alone make this book a 'must have' and include many which have never before been published: all are simply stunning.
From Dave Bickers, Jeff Smith and Arthur Lampkin to John Banks, Bryan Wade and Vic Allan - all eleven British champions from 1960 to 1974 are here with full profiles of the men and their championship careers, complete with fantastic action photos!
Out FRONT is both a joy to read and a much needed work which really brings to life the history of scrambles and motocross in the UK through the careers of the men who became the champions.
For each champion the book provides an insight into their background and the reasons behind their choices of race meeting, tactics and bike, their involvement in international races and the TV series of the time, and the racing politics of the period. Detailed, authoritative and drawing on the recollections of the British Champions themselves, Out FRONT is a window on how scrambles and motocross used to be in the Britain of the 1960s and early 70s.
