YEAR: 1975 // TRACK: ASSEN // YVON DUHAMEL HAS JUST WONTHE F750 RACE IN STYLE, ON AND OFF THE BIKE
You can measure many eras by the extremes of fashion. Many of the trends have gone, long consigned to the dustbin of distress that accumulates so much of what once was deemed essential, as seen in this wonderful photo by Nick Nicholls. Face hair, promo girls, a Duhamel on top of the podium looking effortlessly cool... The only modern racer anywhere near getting this ethos in top flight racing again (in truth) is Cal Crutchlow. You can see the real Cal from time to time in Parc Ferme. Get growing the long hair and sideburns Cal, let’s have another refined caveman out there sticking it to the pretty boy glitterati just likeyvon did 43 years ago. It’s time.
