The Ultimate Gifts for Dirt Bike Fans

With the imminent start of the mega shopping season of Black Friday, Cyber Monday then Christmas, make sure you have No Regrets by selecting the right gifts for the dirt bike fan. It has to be the incredible story of a working-class lad from a London council estate who went on to be Britain’s best ever motocross racer.

No Regrets is the biography of triple world 500 champion Dave Thorpe, available in a hardback book written by well-respected moto-journalist Jack Burnicle and packed with stunning images from the Thorpe family archive as well as famous racing photos.

And now No Regrets – The David Thorpe Story is also available as a 117-minute DVD packed with current and historic interviews with Dave and his peers, racing footage of the glory days of 500cc motocross racing and lots more. Including how he won his three world 500 crowns and how it could have been so many more…

In this must-watch DVD, go along with Dave as he re-visits the legendary Namur track in Belgium once more – the scene of some of his greatest victories but also some difficult times due to injuries – for a look at the historic circuit now. And join him as he visits his most respected rival Andre Malherbe, just a short time before the Belgian sadly passed away.

Whether you go for the book, DVD or both, it’s an incredible insight into the greatest era of motocross as the mighty HRC lured British hero Thorpe away from Kawasaki to battle with Honda team-mates Malherbe and Eric Geboers in 500 GPs and face the mighty Americans such as David Bailey, Rick Johnson, Johnny O’Mara and Ron Lechien in the Motocross des Nations.

And go on the amazing journey as Thorpe recounts the trials and turmoil of why he walked away from HRC Honda as world champion to go back to the factory Kawasaki squad in a bid to win a first world 500 title for the green team that was ultimately destined to fail. With a cast including some of the greatest names in motocross as well as Dave’s inner circle of family and friends, it’s an unmissable record of one man’s battle to the very top of the sport he loves.
