It's in Australia. Damon Bevan (member here) Can be seen in the factory JMC gear. He would of been 12 or 13 in this I think.
Also theres a Factory Quicksilver Pro in there too. Probably Alistair Johnson.
Looks like a Sydney Track but I don't know which one.

Oh and the skatepark bit at the end is probably Ryde. I rode there a few times myself.



Definitely Australia. Looks like the guy crossing the finish line at the 50sec mark is on a Cobra (Queensland brand right?)

really? This video and thread and it turns into a 'clips vs flats' you suck no you suck?

god..



It's more simple minded than that. Tone is an Afterhours dingleberry. You'll find him chastising Afterhours on almost every post.

Cool vid though.

This video is from the 1981 N.S.W state titles in Nowra a town about 3 hours south of Sydney in Australia.
This track was well ahead of it's time, eletronic timming board, air ram gate even if it was allready half way down when up.
That's me in the Factory JMC gear in maybe a moto or semi, because i won the main that year.
Lots of riders in there that went on to do well in the years after this to, the guy in the red, white and green Cobra gear is Todd Easterbrook who later rode for Factory Diamond Back.

The last few seconds are of North Ryde skate park which was the first park in 1980 to let bikes ride there, myself and the guy in the blue and white gear who wins that last race where there the first day they lets us in there.
If you look to the left of the shot there was a huge half pipe that Darrell Young broke his ankle in within hours of arriving in Australia in december 1981.
Now a car park owned by a bus company.
