Plus they spend some time letting Perry tell stories about the good ol' days of BMX racing and the early years of mountain biking.

About Perry Kramer:

From the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame -

"Born 1959 in Santa Monica, CA., Perry was the 1979 Pro World Champion, winning the Pro Class at the 1979 JAG International World Championship. Other international championships include first place for an International Race in Japan, 1980; the Avro Invitational Fietscross race in Eidnhoven, Netherlands in 1980; and the New Zealand Summer Nationals in 1983. In 1976, he placed second for the NBL Nationals, and placed fourth as NBL Pro in 1979 and 1980.

In 1978, Kramer assisted Scot Breithaupt to establish SE Racing, a BMX company that today is owned by Fuji Bicycles. In 1979, he created and promoted a BMX bike named the "PK Ripper", using his initials. The bike is still being produced and sold today. In 1978, Perry began BMX schools and turned that into what was promoted in 1980 as "Perry Kramer's Pro School of BMX". That year's tour was sponsored by BMX Plus magazine."

About Mike Bell:

"Mike "Too Tall" Bell was one of America’s leading motocross and Supercross racers of the late 1970s and early '80s. He rode for Yamaha during his entire pro career. His biggest claim to fame was winning the 1980 AMA Supercross Championship, but Bell proved very versatile throughout his seven-year professional career, winning a total of 20 AMA and Trans-AMA nationals.

Bell was born in Los Angeles on August 8, 1957. His father, Bill, was an avid racer and well-known tuner who did development work for American Honda on its four-stroke desert racing machines during the late 1960s. Mike began riding at age 10 up in the mountains outside Los Angeles where his family had a cabin, but unlike many of his contemporaries who started much younger, Bell did not start racing until he was 14. Once he got on the track however, with a new Maico, it didn’t take long for Bell to go right to the top of the highly competitive Southern California motocross scene...." Read more here
