The story of Cru Jones, a young man who can overcome all obstacles that prevent him from participating in the BMX race "Helltrack." As he works towards his dream, Cru falls in love with Christian, an amateur racer. With the help of Christian and her friends, can Cru's "Rad Racing Team" defeat the top BMX factory rider, Bart Taylor ? Written by

During practice for the film, Rick Moliterno (one of the stunt riders for the film), broke his leg. This was written later into the film, when Cru is about to start the Helltrack race, but Rick, sitting on Christian's truck, asks him to sign his cast. See more »

I love this movie. As i said in the other comment i first
saw Rad back in 1986 or 1987. There's just something about this movie. To be honest this movie doesn't seem that dated to me, because i've been watching Rad ever since
1986 or 1987. there was never a huge gap between that time. This movie just has some magic to it. Ok so its a
little low on plot, the acting maybe isn't that great, and maybe it is predictable, but you know what? Who cares!. This movie is entertaining from beginning to end, it never lets up for a second. The music is great too, I love Break The Ice, thunder in your heart, send me an angel,
and the other cool songs. Rad is loaded with cool bike
tricks, great racing scenes and it's very inspiring. The
person on here that said they don't make movies like this
anymore is right, Rad just contains a sort of magic movies don't have nowadays. I've had the same worn out tape of this movie for about 10 or more years now, I can't get
enough of it. I wish there'd be a sequel to Rad. I know it wouldn't be as good as the original, but i'd still like to what Cru, luke and the others are up to now. Rad is in the top 3 of my favorite movies of all time. I also think I have watched Rad more times than any other movie in history. It's just got a lot of re-watchable value to it.
Once again I love this movie and always will. I give Rad
**** out of ****
