It’s almost here. The massive British GP is just days away now and to get you in the mood and fully clued-up on all the goings-on and movers and shakers in the world motocross championship in time for Matterley Basin, MOTO 82 delivers the essential guide to the British GP with our ultimate guide the men who’ll make magic at Matterley.
The obvious choices for glory, the outside bets and the riders who most likely won’t win but nonetheless will make Matterley the best GP of the year – MOTO has detailed just why these men are going to tear it up and make the British GP one for the ages. Not least MOTO 82 cover star Tommy Searle.
It’s not just the modern day icons who’ll be setting Matterley alight that MOTO 82 is dedicated too either, it’s an issue packed with motocross icons; human and machine.
One of the coolest riders ever, the legendary Jeff Emig sits down for an exclusive I Know This Much unlike any you’ve read before and MOTO kicks off its awesome new three-part Icons of Motocross series on historic factory machinery by unearthing the bike from the most famous motocross photograph of all time, Georges Jobe’s 1984 Kawasaki SR500, as well as the history making factory Yamaha and Suzukis of the late Donny Schmidt and South African hero Greg Albertyn.
MOTO has also uncovered the eye-wateringly expensive £60,000 AMCA club racer’s RMZ450 that gives all these iconic factory bikes a run for their money in the cost stakes and is tricker than most current GP team bikes.
There’s world exclusives too as MOTO bags the first ever ride anywhere in the world of the exciting KTM Freeride E electric bike, as well as conducting the first UK magazine test of the excellent HM enduro machines that have single-handed put Japanese-based enduro bikes back in the woods game.
With all this and more packed into a massive action-packed 164 pages, MOTO 82 is the perfect summer reading.
See you all at Matterley, enjoy.
