Sweet disc this one. We go behind the scenes and see what makes champion FMX rider Tommy Clowers tick. This guy seems to be very different from the other riders personalities that we are used to seeing on DVD and his quiet unassuming way got the better of me.

Who knows? Maybe that's just how he presented on this disc and he's really a rabble rouser, it's beside the point. Wait till you see Clowers on a bike and then you'll know why you bought the disc, he is a sensation!

Over the course of the disc which weighs in at about 51 minutes we get to travel overseas with Tommy and see what goes into the preparation for a big competition before the crowds are invited in and the big lights go on. Witness a pro riding session in the lead up to contest time and the interaction the riders have with each other.

Clowers is lucky enough to have a sympathetic friend who has built a track on his property for Tommy to practice on and we get some insane helmet cam shots that truly blew me away. I always wish there was more of these, or at least cams mounted to the front and back of the bike and this DVD gives us a taste of what it's like to be up there in the air with a champion.

Audio and video on this disc is good quality and certainly nothing to complain about. The extras really fill out the rest of this release with a great look at some of the best riders in the USA in action doing what they do best.

This disc gets the big thumbs up.
