The video features thrilling rare footage of action from motocross, trials and road racing more than five decades ago, with two absorbing films transporting viewers back to 1956 for elbow-to-elbow racing and more than a little mud. The first film, Motor Cycle Sport 1956 is a compilation of fascinating black and white footage from three leading British events from that year, the Senior race at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough, as motorcycle legends Geoff Duke and Bob McIntyre do battle, the Welsh Three Day Trial, featuring George Fisher, Johnny Brittain and Ted Usher, and the Motocross Grand Prix at Britain's Hawkstone Park, with Les Archer, Jeff Smith and Johnny Draper.
The next film, Mud in Your Eye, stays with motocross - this time the French Grand Prix at Rouen. The colour footage, with commentary from Nevil Lloyd, features Les Archer battling in the rain and thick French mud against more than 40 of the best European riders, such as Bill Nilsson, the Klym brothers Rene and Robert, Victor Leloup and Auguste Mingels. The field is filled with British machines, from BSA, Norton and Matchless, as well as British riders, who dominate the final.
