    Talking Motorcycles with Jared Mees and Bryan Smith...Grand National

    in Sports

    The heavy hitters of flat track join us tonight on Talking Motorcycles!


     


    The 2014 AMA Pro Grand National Championship has arrived at it's final date for the season. The Pomona Flat Track Finals is at hand and the chase for the championship comes down to three riders. Two of the heavy hitters in Grand National competition are on the show tonight!


    Jared Mees has a 13 point lead coming into the final round. His Rogers Racing HD has performed beautifully all season long and Jared is riding at the top of his game. He will join us in this episode to discuss his strategy and plan to capture the title.


    Bryan Smith is in a slight deficit coming into the final round. But for an untimely oil leak on his Crosley Radio Villa Esparza Kawasaki at Calistoga he may certainly have the point lead for this weekend. Missing the Dash for Cash at Calistoga also took a bite out of his championship plans. We discuss his thoughts on the Pomona track, his Kawasaki as well as the competition he faces in this final round of competition.


    Gene Romeo, like so many others, followed the trail from Ascot to the Grand National Championship and the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Fittingly chosen as the Grand Marshal for this weekends Flat Track Finals at Pomona, we discuss his history in the sport and his take on the race this weekend. 


    Thank you for joining us on this ultimate flat track show for 2014 featuring the heavy hitters of flat track past and present.

    Gordon Thomson (Dynasty, Santa Barbara)

    in Entertainment

    Gordon Thomson is a Canadian actor. His most prominent role was in the American prime-time soap opera Dynasty playing the villainous Adam Carrington, son of Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) and Alexis Colby (Joan Collins). He began acting while studying English at McGill University in Montreal. Having received acclaim for stage performances in productions as diverse as Love's Labours Lost, Godspell and Joe Orton's Loot, Thomson gained a place on ABC's Talent Development Program, which led to Dynasty's producer Aaron Spelling personally casting the Canadian as Adam Carrington in the show. Thomson debuted in Dynasty in 1982 and remained with the series until its cancellation in 1989. During the 1985-1986 season, Thomson also appeared in three episodes of the Dynasty spin-off, The Colbys.
    After Dynasty ended, Thomson returned to daytime soaps. In 1990, he joined the now defunct series Santa Barbara (as the third actor to portray the character Mason Capwell). However, his commitment to Santa Barbara left him unable to reprise his role as Adam Carrington in the TV mini-series Dynasty: The Reunion in 1991 (he was subsequently replaced by British actor Robin Sachs). Thomson has also had roles on The Young and the Restless, Passions, the now defunct Sunset Beach, and in 2009 he appeared on Days of our Lives. Thomson is currently guest starring in web series DeVanity as Preston Regis alongside series regular Kyle Lowder as son Andrew Regis.
    Aside from acting, Gordon Thomson's television work also includes a spell as guest host for Britain's ITV network on their then breakfast show Good Morning Britain, for which he also covered celebrity events such as Wimbledon and Royal Ascot.

    Talking Motorcycles with Mert Lawwill...Hall of Famer

    in Sports

    Mert Lawwill won the 1969 Grand National Championship. In 1970 Bruce Brown produced On Any Sunday featuring Mert's bid to repeat the feat. Did Mert know he was to be the star of that epic motorcycle film? He tells us all about that in this episode. On Any Sunday made Mert and a host of other flat track riders household name amongst motorcyclist and a wider audience as well. 


    When Mert moved from Idaho to California to race motorcycles, little did he know how it would shape and mold his future. Racing at the Agajanian produced events at Ascot Park taught the man much about many aspects of racing. He discovered that many of the competitors were modifying frames so Mert began the process of frame modifications that ultimately led to him being not only in the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame but the Mountainbike Hall of Fame as well. His bicycle suspension has won a World Championship! Is Mert the father of the Mountain Bike?


    Winning the Grand National Championship and being in both of those Hall of Fames would be enough for most people but not Mert. We will discuss his contribution to mankind with the creation of Mert's Hands. The prosthetic hands and the soon to be released prosthetic arms will perhaps be the primary thing he will be remembered for.


    Thank you for listening to this episode of Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this conversation with one of the legends of our sport. Our goal is for you to learn things when you listen to our shows you can't learn anywhere else.
