    A man rides a motorcycle along a wet and muddy track.

    A motorbike and sidecar come round a bend in a muddy track.

    More similar shots of people riding motorbikes over rough terrain. The motorcycle and sidecars look particularly strange being driven over the rocky and muddy ground. A small number of people are out to watch the competition. Many of the riders have such difficulty on the terrain that they have to use their feet to assist them.

    Sound Track Missing.
