Old news for some, but I'll post them anyway.
(I really like the guy with the standard Airhead, either crazy, or with balls the size of the bikes cylinders)
Yammaha XT500 promotion films, (The XT in the race were really TT500 machines with XT labels to promote sales of the XT):
Honda promotion films:
(The Works Honda is sounding fantastic, as do the BMW)
Last film, at 3:30 Neveu is nervously awaiting for Auriol to turn up.
After some time Neveu understands that something has gone wrong.
Auriol is late.
He have had a bad crash breaking bothe his foot ankels in the process. Despite this he manages to restart his bike and continue to the next stop.
He finally turns up, driving at high speed towards the stage finish, crossing the line he stops and leans forward on his bike crying " I'm in pain, I'm in terrible pain"
The race for Auriol ends there, and Neveu can drive and win the final stage without being chased by Auriol.
