The Great Outdoors: Industrial Strength DVDThursday, January 18, 2007 | 8:31 AM
In this article…
No Fear’s Great Outdoors series has been chilling motocross fans since 2002, offering filmed, slow-motion, art-quality footage as well as killer music the likes of which showcase your favorite sport the way you always try to describe it. Motocross is beautiful in it ruggedness in TGO. The DVD makes you want to ride, want to race, and want to go to the races. It does not, however, give you the blow-by-blow account of the season gone by. This year’s edition skips around from round to round and rider to rider with little reason, jumping from one race to another, skipping some, changing classes, and mixing interviews.
But there’s a new twist this year. The Industrial Strength header comes from the microphones wired up to team managers and mechanics, giving never-before-seen insight to the races. The film starts with former Boost Mobile/Yamaha of Troy team manager Dave Osterman barking orders at High Point. It includes Josh Grant’s mechanic, Naveen, consoling Josh after a moto at Southwick, and the KTM team trying to figure out a way to keep Mike Alessi up front. Along the way, Mike Gosselaar chats with Ricky Carmichael on the starting line and Andrew Short tries to get the ball rolling. You’ve never heard this stuff before.
And like always, the footage and music on here is like no other. The beauty of motocross can’t be seen on a results sheet, but it’s obvious in The Great Outdoors. You can pick yours up for only $24.95 right here.
