A weekend that went down in the BMX History books at the Helltrack RAD reunion race. As a girl growing up seeing the birth of BMX and 80's boom of BMX racing on TV, I watched BMX Bandits and RAD on repeat.
Barry Nobles and I couldn't miss this opportunity to travel to Dallas Texas and be able to look the part in my throw back "Cru Jones" outfit. Drop in on Helltrack and while we where there, bring it back to life in our remake social media video.
As the only girl dropping in and racing the boys...it brought back memories to where racing begun for me at 5 years old!
A massive thank you to Tex Plex Dallas Texas for bringing this iconic BMX track back to life.
If You haven't seen the original iconic 80's BMX film RAD.
Bart Conner shares the story of how he was cast as Bart Taylor in the 1986 BMX movie Rad. He tells funny stories of how rabid the fans are, even Shaq. Bart and other stars of the film gathered together with me to record an audio track that works as a companion to watching Rad.
