      I remember watching this movie and both loving it and hating it. Loving it because it WAS a BMX movie and had ‘some’ good bits, but hating it because most of it was naff, and I even knew this as a 12 year old.

      I guess I better start a new Pinterest board on Retro Stuff.
      Steve.

    Awesome Post. PS Nicole Kidman was hot on a BMX. She started going down hill after Days of Thunder IMO.
