To watch the video click the play button above ->Great motorcycle films are rare. Hollywood has murdered our beloved form of transportation for 100 years and as such quality content is simply lacking. While Youtube has become our saviour and plenty of people are pumping out great stuff, from the likes MADTV, Alec Chacon, Lyndon Poskitt and even ourselves, the feature films are years apart.
In 2005, American film maker Dana Brown produced a masterpiece in film making. He continued a legacy that his father, the great Bruce Brown, started with On Any Sunday. If you haven’t seen the original On Any Sunday, you genuinely are missing out on a documentary film masterpiece. Even to this day it holds up fantastically and you should spend your next movie night watching it.
Anyway, back to Dust To Glory. That film was centred around an off-road motorsport race held in the incredible Baja Peninsular in Mexico. It’s creatively named the Baja 1000. It’s a 1000 mile race. You get the idea. The real craziness of the Baja 1000 is that it’s non-stop. It’s 1000 miles of unadulterated, unhinged off-road racing where the fastest team wins and no rules apply.
The roads aren’t closed, the laws don’t matter and the locals love to build a booby trap. The average speed of the winner is generally around 50-55mph (90-100km/h). The racing is insane, the speeds unbelievable and the film captures every single moment and emotion perfectly. The key purpose of this 200 words monologue is that Dana Brown has made a sequel and pretty much everyone associated with Brake wet themselves with excitement.
