Torsten Hallman is a four times world champion and was for 14 years a husky factory rider. He turned 75 last Friday…
On seeing the video I feel slightly embarrassed to say I had never really heard of the dude, my love for MX started in another era, around the time of Guy “Airtime” Cooper, which already makes me feel pretty old.
But anyway, apparently “..he definitely started the mx sport in the USA in the 60’s and kicked their asses…” which is certainly no mean feat.
Couldn’t help googling Guy Cooper after typing that, so here are a few photos of him too!
