World MX Championship 2005 Official Review Available now on DVDTuesday, February 7, 2006 | 11:55 AM
There is no other championship that can compete with the full
throttle, suspension blasting, and dirt busting action of MX GP. This
action-packed review from powersports specialists Duke is a must-have
for all motocross fans, either to re-live the action or experience it
for the first time.
2005 saw the longest season in the history of motocross – visiting three continents and thirteen different countries, including all-new events in South Africa and Japan. Excitingly, the series also saw no less than eleven different riders claiming GP success, with a mix of new and established riders jostling for the top spot.
But this year’s limelight was well and truly hogged once again by the mighty Stefan Everts, who took his 9th world title after twelve heat wins and seven GPs, making his all time GP win total an awesome 86. Everts will chase his tenth title next season - but it is expected to be his last before retirement; therefore fans should not miss this chance to catch him in action at his best.
In 2005 Everts' biggest rivals included Ben Townley who was determined to go out on a high before beginning a new career in the US in 2006; and championship veterans Michael Pichon and Josh Coppins who narrowly missed out on championship success last year. They were behind him every step of the way making this a super-charged season from start to finish.
The program features highlights from 17 action-packed events in Ireland, Netherlands, UK, Czech Republic, Belgium, South Africa, Sweden, France, Japan, Germany and Portugal. A range of camera angles - including some great on-bike footage - and post-race interviews give viewers an awesome insight into action that goes unseen in the stands.
DVD Special Features include ‘The Sound of the Silencer’ and ‘Earth, Wind and Tires’.
World MX Championship 2005 is available now, priced at $34.95 on DVD from leading video outlets or direct from Duke Video www.dukevideousa.com.
