Cool video, from back when bikes slid around a bit on the track and a rider could high-side if he got too greedy. It was easier to tell the best riders from the rest before computers and traction control took over.
I met a guy a few yrs back who used to race then wrench in the AMA, he actually showed me pictures taken with his phone of some of the RV parties he frequented with the top AMA dogs......some showing Gobert passed the fvck out on the floor. Normally, we laugh hearing stories like that but it's almost criminal that a man with so much natural ability like he had completely wasted his talent and life for his night life habits. The guy would race during the day, get drunk AND as high as a kite at night. What a waste.
