All MX racers or riders know that Motocross is one of the
toughest sports on the planet. However over the years we have
had countless people say to us "all you have to do is sit down and twist
the throttle and let the bike do the work". Well folks this film is for all those people who say
"Motocross is Easy."

2003 German Grand Prix. Colin Edwards narrowly escaped injury after his Aprilia RS3 Cube goes up in flames. The RS3, an in-line triple, was technically advanced but difficult to ride having a tendency to wheelie easily, a lack of front-end feel, vibration from both the front and rear wheels, and unpredictable response from its fly-by-wire throttle system. The engine was considered the most powerful at that time, producing about 240 bhp. According to Edwards, the bike was simply "born bad."
