Describing the evolution of the series inspired by motocross, Malcolm Morley wrote:
“While waiting for a train in Pennsylvania Station, I came across a motocross magazine with a cover featuring a young motocross rider and a colorful bike in midair doing an impossible maneuver in a sky. For me that is the modern myth. A myth has to have a hero. A hero has to face danger and death.”
