I am truly a fan of older supercross racing, and I spend probably way too much time looking for old races to watch. I’m not even sure how I found this one? You are about to watch the 1997 Las Vegas 125cc Supercross, East vs West shootout.
The main two riders are Kevin Windham (#1 west) on a Yamaha 125cc 2-stroke, and Ricky Carmichael (#70) on a Kawasaki 125cc 2-stroke (my how times have changed). Knowing what we know now about how RC (Ricky Carmichael) ended his career, i.e., the GOAT (Greatest of All Time), this really is an interesting race. I had no idea KDub and RC used to bang bars like they do in this race.
So without further delay, here it is — Enjoy! The video is just shy of 5 minutes long.
