Here is the entire movie:
Broome-Tioga Sports Center in Binghamton, New York, played host to round ten of the 1987 AMA Motocross Championship. Ron Lechien was the big winner in the 500 Class, claiming the overall via 1-2 motos. Jeff Ward (3-1) took second over Rick Johnson (2-3). Keith Bowen and Mike Fisher rounded out the top five.
Suzuki’s George Holland captured the 125 Class overall over Honda’s Micky Dymond and Kawasaki’s Eddie Warren.
At the 500cc Grand Prix of Namur, Belgium, KTM rider Heinz Kinigadner, the two-time 250cc FIM Motocross World Champion (not to mention Austria's one and only World MX Champion), went 4-1 to get his one and only 500cc Grand Prix win. British Kawasaki rider Kurt Nicoll finished second overall with 3-3 scores, while the man who would eventually win the '87 world title, Georges Jobe, won the first moto but did not finish the second.
Down in Brazil, the 250cc World Championship round was being run, and Cagiva rider Pekka Vehkonnen took the overall win with 1-2 scores. American ex-pat Rodney Smith, living in Brazil and racing primarily in South America, ran 3-1, opening the eyes of a lot of 250cc GP teams.
And in Germany, the young French rider Jean-Michel Bayle won the 125cc Grand Prix with 2-1 moto scores, bettering the 5-1 of Italian Cagiva rider Corrado Maddii.
The AMA Amateur Motocross National Championship at Loretta Lynn's was in full swing, and 15-year-old James Stewart was a dominant force in his fluorescent pink Fox Racing gear, winning all six of his motos in 125 Schoolboy Mod and the 125 A class. It was his last appearance at Loretta Lynn's as an amateur, as he was already signed to a Kawasaki factory team deal for 2002 AMA Supercross.
Washougal hosted a 125/500 National and the winner was Kawasaki's Mike Kiedrowski, who went 3-1 to beat the 1-3 of Team Honda's Jeff Stanton.

Chesterfield Yamaha's Donny Schmit clinched the 1992 FIM 250cc Motocross World Championship with a win in Sweden. Schmit earned his second world title with 2-2-1 scores in the three-foot format.
