This is possibly the most embarrassing racing film ever made.

Super Reviewer

A bad sports movie that turns into a bad biker movie that turns into a bad revenge story that turns into a nihilistic waste of time. When a bike racer/mechanic turns down the advances of a gang leader's woman, she tells her man the guy attacked her. The gang in turn beats him up and murders his fiancee, so that when he heals up, he wants bloody revenge. Somewhere along the way, the sport of side hacking gets cast by the wayside. See the MST3K version. Otherwise, avoid it.
