Vintage Motocross - 1973

Posted on November 23, 2021

This is one very cool video and while it isn't really great quality, the sound of the bikes and the riding gear just takes me back to when I first started visiting motocross races. The early 1970s and Roger De Coster was in his prime. Nearly 50 years ago.

The international motocross in Stekene, Belgium was one of the most beautiful and spectacular courses in Europe. Close to the Dutch border and not far from Antwerpen, these type of events were run on a regular basis and unfortunately have more or less disappeared in Belgium, a land that once owned World motocross.
