BRI­TISH UNCIVIL WAR

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Kurt Ni­coll and reign­ing world 500 mo­tocross cham­pion Dave Thorpe were locked in an epic bat­tle for top honours in 1987. But Thorpe’s sea­son was hit by in­jury and Ni­coll made the most of his arch ri­val’s ab­sence at the Ital­ian GP. He said at the time: “It’s about time it all came to­gether. Now I’m back in the hunt.” Un­for­tu­nately, so was Georges Jobe and he would end the sea­son as champ.
