Krazy Horse DQ

"Harleys handle like shite". This one handled the shite.
Dirt Quake was phenomenal. Ditto everything Gary has already said. Plus some peculiar personal moments; eg rolling out to the start grid behind the pace-car that was actually a smoking puff-pastry steak'n'kidney pie on wheels, I'm flanked by nine other choppers (or at least their front knobblies, while the rider is some way further behind). This is chopper speedway.
These atmospheric shots by Sam Christmas show Dimitri Coste riding a Zero Engineering street legal (fully EU homologated) Samurai chop, supplied by Krazy Horse. Dimitri rides with the panache of a seasoned moguls skier. Even in the throws of a crash he looks cool. On the last heat race, bike and rider had a nasty flip on the inner curb and went down with a crunch, ripping off a foot peg. He was still grinning. Thanks to his Ruby Pavillon lid, we could all bask in his shining face. BP
