JMC’s classic riding spot from Dirt the video…
On the recent Wrecking Crew mission, Doddy and Wrecking Crew rider Jon Ashelford headed north to the town of Whitby, and home of Pete and Jamie Tomkins- the team behind Crud Products, and close friends of the late JMC.
We were lucky enough to stay at Pete’s place, and spent a fair bit of time getting smoked by him on his awesome pool table, which takes prime position in his man-room, which is also his work shop for tinkering on his Harley Davidson collection. The late JMC was a huge Harley Davidson fan- no doubt influenced by Pete’s love of the gorgeous machines.
The spot we rode is known locally as The Moon, and it was great to see the spot after reminding myself with a feet up session in front of the telly with the original Dirt film playing. If you haven’t seen Dirt, then find a friend that has and borrow it- it truly captures the feeling of riding like no other film to date, and despite having older bikes and kit, and less extreme riding- it will have to fired up to ride. If you can’t find a copy, then try scanning YouTube- we’ve heard talk that some naughty people have posted sections for others to enjoy…
