    80's Cheesy Bmx movie?

    For all the Mid 30-40 year olds out there! Does anyone remember a bmx movie, I think from the early 80's. It was one of those cheesy underdog stories, at the end of the movie a rider does a backflip during the race to cut the track and win. There was a gratuitous bmx dance scene complete with strobes and everything with the bikers doing different tricks with their bikes on the dance floor. Sorry not a lot of details but it's been a few years since I watched it Some of the guys at work were reminiscing of the old days and shows we remembered and I can't remember the name of that one to save my life. Any takers on this one?

    Not quite...Nicole Kidman was in BMX Bandits.

    The movie Get Lost is referring to is RAD, and it features Lauri Laughlin (from Full House).

    Classic. RAD is still a family favorite (among the 30 year old family crowd).

    Netflix bust!

    So Netflix was a bust they dont have the movie. But I was talking to one of the guys here at work and he actually has it; and a bunch of stories about why he has it. So Monday he will bring it to work "VHS" baby. Anyone have a VCR?
