For it's time it was a good movie
10 February 2002 | by (Iowa u.s.a.) – See all my reviews

When I had first seen this movie in 1989 I thought it was a really good Gp race movie. I had the heart of the all american race dream taking on the big boys and beating them at their own game. I must say it is one movie that connected with me when I was in high school dreaming of racing Gp bikes.
