When we then ran a couple of archive photos from the World Superbike Championships, from New Zealand’s golden era between 1988 and 1992, it also had a few people sit up and take notice.
We have been urged to dig back into our photo archive and see what other interesting items we could come up with.
So, starting today, we are going to run an archive photo or two each week … a bit of a guessing game for you … see if you can name the individuals.
We’ll put a little bit of information in the captions, but we also want to keep you guessing.
Check back and we’ll give you the answer next week, with our next “Who’s that?”
Clues for photo above: Used to race motocross, with some success, back in the 1990s, but now more usually associated with another motorcycling code … and he’s doing very well at that too. He no longer rides Honda.
Clues for photo below: Left New Zealand before he’d won a senior motocross title but did extremely well on the international stage. Seen here racing in Australia in 2001. He no longer rides Suzuki.
