Finally found, rare, after school special BMX TV program from the 70's

You might need to be over 50 to remember this Insight, After School Specials. lol

A few of us over at V seriously looked high & low for 10 years for a copy of this & it magically appears on YouTube 3 months ago. Insight was like ABC & showed "After School Specials" right around the time kids would be coming home from school. They had stories that revolved around life lessons & such for kids. I remember seeing this "Loser takes All" probably around 77"-79"-ish.......but I remember it fondly as it was the first time I saw BMX on TV.

It's a straight forward story & looking back, was pretty blunt about treating others with respect. There is a lot of nice, O.S. scenes, bikes & people. Eric Rupe did most of the racing as the #1 kid.

Its a little over 20 minutes & I plan on showing this to my kids later today.

This just in: Drinking water supply has been compromised. Symptoms include acting irrational and disrespectful when discussing race, religion, and politics. Many impacted.
