Kenny Roberts and the Indy Mile (2009)

In 1975 Kenny Roberts won the Indy Mile riding the legendary Yamaha TZ750 flat tracker - a bike so powerful that it was soon banned by the AMA. Stunning footage as Kenny rides the old bike again, and look out for the original clip as the Yamaha starts last and gradually reels the pack in...

Thirty-four years later 'King' Kenny returns to the Indy Mile circuit to attempt to ride the TZ750 once again. Turns out Kenny hasn't been on a bike for over 12 months! Colin Edwards is on hand to give some advice. Will it all come back to him? Some great old footage, too!
