Thanks for posting that link. Fantastic! What a strange mixture of pewee football and BMX that was. I love the whistles and stop watches and the coaching. Wow: "Ok, Into the berm! Hit it high, hit it fast!" "Always land on your back wheel Jimmie!" But at least they steered clear of the "peddle peddle peddle" admonition we all know and love. The "push it Jimmie, push it push it!" is far superior in my book.

Seriously, though, that track looks like it would be a gas to ride, mud section and all. I would love to put down a foot around a flat turn like that. I miss that sort of thing. However, I'm not quite sure I could get behind a 42.8 second track, even if I wanted to. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I love how, for one single episode, all the cops are suddenly BMX gurus. The son asked for a ride home but Catrier Said: "I have to get the "equipment" repaired for Central." Meaning BMX bikes. -As though he was loading a bunch of football pads in the bed of the truck or as if they were training a bunch of fast kids on borrowed bikes.

I didn't see the whole thing, but yes. Very interesting mix of BMX racing and pewee football. The whistle really knocked me out!

Thanks for posting though.

I wonder if this episode inspired him to race Jason Bateman at the 1984 or 1985 NBL War of the Stars in Azusa? He ended up breaking his leg.

"Timmy" looks a little stiff in his riding.

Hey, right about the 40:00 mark, when all the Mongoose & Jag riders are together, there is a guy sitting in the bleachers w/ a Robinson hat. Is that Chuck Robinson?
