"The Unridables" Lands On YouTube by staff
Thursday, May 16, 2013
We were wondering how long it would be before the ITV (British) production of "The Unridables" made its way to a video sharing site so non-Euro types could see it. That answer? "Already".
The premise of the documentary follows author Mat Oxley's book "An Age of Superheroes" in focusing on the two-stroke wars of the 1980s and 1990s when bikes had too much power, too little mass and tires tried to make up the difference. It features many of the American riders of the era, the battle between Kevin Schwantz and Wayne Rainey, while in an interview Eddie Lawson gives new information on why he left Yamaha for Honda.
