Who remembers the great fights in the mid ’80s in the 500cc motocross world championship? Thorpe versus Malherbe, Geboers and Jobe in 1986, 3 Honda’s and the single Kawasaki.
Or the chilling points battle untill the final moto of the year, like Jean Michel Bayle and Dave Strijbos in 1988 or Trampas Parker, Mike Healey and Alex Puzar on their 250s in 1991.
Motocross Grand Prix racing has a long history of these great battles, but unfortunately there is a huge lack of pictures, stories and statistic on what really happened.
MXGPhistory.com is a non-commercial website which wants to celebrate this history on our website. We offer pictures and results of the world championship seasons in the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s. In the future we will add stories and tales of the season.
As you can see the site is still a work in progress, but slowly the data is added, so come back frequently for more! And don’t forget to like our facebook page
