I can't believe that they don't make films like this anymore!!!!! This film is excellent. It has great characters i.e. Cider and fantastic acting from the seminal David Essex. The theme tune and opening sequence is the best ever and just makes you want to ride motorbikes. The training montage is far better then anything in Rocky and I have been eating Alpen ever since. And the ending is fabulous from the moment Barry Sheene pops a wheelie to the dramatic climax. That Bridges bloke is excellent as the villain and David Essex has some fantastic lines such as "Can I have my bike back". Look for the superb Nick Brimble in a cameo as a tall hard man, a role that he has made his own. My mate likes this film so much, he now races motorbikes. And another mate, well his mum loves the early scene of the dudes on scramblers. If you like motorbikes, you'll love this film. Oh yeah, don't watch the "new" ending on DVD as it is pump.
