Twin Falls Motocross Footage From 1972 Dusted Off And Shared
For fans of old, grainy video footage from a bygone era, man did I stumble into something good. This YouTube post shows some of Idaho's best dirt bike riders competing in a Twin Falls race that took place almost 50 years ago.
This footage, shared by someone who goes by Reese95w, looks as if it was shot on an old Bell Howell camera, then converted nicely and set to the Eric Clapton's "Peaches And Diesel." You can almost taste the dirt and smell the exhaust.
This footage has everything. Wheelies, near wipe outs, and a huge crowd that has gathered so close to the action I'm actually amazed no one was killed during this recording.
Where you at this event? Do you recognize anyone from the race? If so, please feel free to share your memories with us.
