Admittedly you might wonder what fish net stockings and leather mini skirts have to do with sports, but here’s the answer – Walton’s Grand National Motocross Championship 2010.
I’d always maintained that these public spectacles were a bore, but a coworker convinced me to check out Walton one year and I’ve been a fan ever since.
Walton is spectacular not only in the daring of its riders who take some nasty falls and demonstrate incredible skill, but it also is a cultural phenomenon. Walton attracts a certain fringe element the overall impression of which is something very unique. Put all the grease monkey’s skilled mechanics, motor heads, tattoo people and crazed lunatics on high power bikes and pump them up on free energy drinks (Monster Energy sponsors the event) and you get this most incredible vibe.
These ladies perform the all important task of holding up of the “30 seconds to start of race sign”.
