Movie motorbikes: Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle

One for motocross fans with a high-octane, four-minute chase full of thrills, spills and explosions.

The 2003 American action adventure comedy features many of technician Gary Greenslade’s motocross heroes doing the stunt riding.

The film stars Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu again as the three Angels working for the Townsend Agency.

The sequel to Charlie’s Angels sees them go undercover to retrieve two missing silver bands containing valuable encrypted information revealing the new identities of everyone in the Federal Witness Protection Program, some of whom have been killed.

The trio end up fighting villains on motocross bikes. More than 20 top supercross racers made sure the action scenes worked. They included Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael and Mike Jones while freestyle legend Mike Metzger performed his signature backflip.

“The movie has got some of my motocross heroes in it. Some people think it is far-fetched but the boys actually did the stunts themselves to make it all work.

“And a lot of it is in slow-mo,” said Gary who did motocross racing for 15 years.

Three days of the riders showing off their best freestyle moves on an extra-large, purpose-built supercross track makes for plenty of two-wheeled action.

“It’s a great film because of that scene,” he added.
