There are two different endings to this film in circulation. The full version ends with David Essex lifting his arms in victory as his motorbike crosses the finish line. Seconds after he does so the bike begins to wobble, then spins out of control and crashes spectacularly. The second version concludes with a freeze-frame immediately after Essex crosses the line and raises his arms. See more »
When you think this is over 25 years old it ain't so bad. Sometimes the acting leaves a lot to be desired and some of the locations have you wondering if its U.S. or U.K. but the grand finale is still worth the wait.
I didn't realise there was an alternate ending and I'm disappointed the DVD I bought from Play didn't have both endings not just the one made for the US market.
I won't spoil it too much but I don't think it's really an alternate ending just 5 seconds shorter.
If you're around my age the theme song at the end of the movie will bring back memories and probably get you singing along.
