MUST WATCH - Kathy Sessler's 1970's BMX Race Films 6

Kathy Sessler, who you may now know as the Manager of the Santa Cruz Syndicate, has been involved with bicycles in the dirt since the early 1970's. At the age of 13, she saw the moto movie, On Any Sunday in the theaters. The short section of that movie that featured kids ripping the dirt on Schwinn Stingrays, pretending to be motorcycle riders, inspired her. She hauled her brothers out to a dirt lot and they built a race track with jumps, whoops, mud pits and even downhill sections. Kathy organized races and filmed them on her dad's 8mm film camera. This video is the goosebump-enducing result.

Edit: This is from the bonus section of Sprung 5
