1ST LINER - MX DES NATIONS FRANCE 1988
Since I know a thing or two about him,
I chose a quote from a film he likes
as tribute title to the one MX biker
who makes my heart race :
Ron "The Machine" Lechien
also known as Dogger
[Get this: chien means dog
though you'll often read "Lechein"
for they hear it as Le-Sheen]
He spent his entire childhood being trained to win,
and the first result : 1983 Rookie of the Year
This title says to me the kid was fearless;
to be 16 in the golden age of dirt bike, battling with
the most raging youngsters and many legends of the Seventies...
Quote Geoff Meyer at mxlarge.com :
[b]« Throughout the 80's, Lechien's fluid effortless style set him apart from
the rest of the riders. To this day, Lechien remains one of the most
naturally gifted riders the sport has ever seen.
