Description


More than 400 motorcycle riders have been members of this elite world-famous motorcycle stunt and drill team. It was formed by the Academy Award winning movie star, Victor McLaglen in 1935 at the urging of movie stuntman, Nick DeRush, and although Victor passed away in 1959, the team has continued.

Most members stay active in the team for 10-20 years and during that tme, hone their skills, riding at 7-9 mph in drills, doing handstands on motorcyces, building 4-motor, 12-man pyramids, and pushing the limits of what can be done on a moving motorcycle. The members sometimes perform at as many as 35 shows a year, practice nearly every weekend, and put their own personal motorcycles through a maximum test of endurance. They are a very dedicated lot and do this type of riding just because they love the entertainment factor. They can do things on motorcycles that most people wouldn't even think about.

These members are all team players. They do what is best for the team, not as individuals. Each one has his or her specialty - as a "motorman," "safetyman," or "climber," but they all work together to make the performances outstanding and unique. That's what has made this team so successful through these many years.
