YOU KNOW THAT “DIRT” RHYMES WITH “HURT”, YES?

Every weekend, legions of powerful and daring young men, kick their dirtbikes into life and sally forth to test their mettle and, sometimes, the bike’s metal as well.

Of course, when it all comes together it is a sublime dance to behold. Graceful, powerful, in control and a true vision splendid.

But when it all goes to shit, and it does quite often, because how could it not, then it is not so splendid a vision.

Or is it?

Oh, and if you’re squeamish, go look at something else.
