THORPE GETS DIRTY

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Dave Thorpe was bat­tling hard with fel­low Brit Kurt Ni­coll back in 1988, but it was a dustup with Mervyn An­stie that led the mo­tocross leg­end to have a lit­tle roll in the dirt at the Swiss round. An­stie punted Thorpe off on lap one, leav­ing him lan­guish­ing in 28th place with a gashed back and some sour grapes – be­fore mount­ing a mas­sive as­sault to fin­ish the race in fourth place.
