Here is a #TBT treat for you ,I came across a 6 part compilation of Mario Soto’s race’s whilst he was a part of the Factory Powerlite years.
For those of you (younger) riders that have maybe not heard of Mario Soto , let me fill you in a bit.
Mario was one of the most gifted riders ever to set foot on a BMX track , he had so much skill and power that it was frightening, and let me tell you he was scared of nothing!!! he had the drive and determination to make it to the top of the pro ranks in the USA and I had the pleasure of watching him race at the World Champs in Vallet France.
I always remember that at that particular race my mate Darren o’neil had Mario in his motos , and Darren turned to me and said ” I think i’ll be ok cos I’ve only got some little Columbian dude next to me on the gate , I’ll cut him off !!” Hahaha.
Let me tell you …..Daz got rinsed out!!!
Anyway , I have posted the first part of this Mario compilation below and will be posting the rest over the next few Thursdays, so keep coming back to watch cos they are a treat.
