Massive leaps over the plentiful jumps of the rock hard Guadalajara circuit are the riveting feature of the 1985 Spanish Motocross Grand Prix. Honda ace Andre Malherbe is the star of the show. He pegged back Britain’s Dave Thorpe with a tigerish display of riding which had the Senors and Signores agog with admiration. Overcoming leg burns from the Belgian GP, Malherbe masterfully demonstrated how he has progressed from his early 125cc Yamaha beginnings to being 1984 World Champion. In the end the Kawasaki of Georges Jobe made it a Belgian one-two, with Britain’s Thorpe and Kurt Nicoll third and fourth.
