It's going to take alot more than skill for Cru Jones to win the toughest BMX race in history.... It's going to take a miracle.
Cru Jones is the best BMX biker in Cochrane. He's got the talent to become the best BMX daredevil in the world. As the local paperboy, he jumps, spins, twists, and flips his bike with amazing ability. Bart Conner is the best BMX biker in the world, and he's in town to race for the $100,000 HELLTRACK competition, the most grueling BMX race in history. Cru wants a shot at winning the title, but his mom, Talia Shire, insists he take his college entrance exams which fall on the same day. For the first time in his life, Cru has to make his own decisions. He decides to go for Helltrack, but Jack Weston the race promoter, has a dirty scheme for keeping the local whiz kid out of the race and away from his prized champion. Lori Loughlin, a member of the opposite team, can get Allen on track for Helltrack! And teach him a few other things while she's at it!".
Rad is Directed by famous Stuntman Hal Needham who also did Smokey & The Bandit. Rad is out of print *You'll recognize Lori Loughlin from the TV sitcom "Full House" as well as a lot of other flix's, she was in plenty of teen type movies as she was growing up. Bart Conner is a BMX Pro and overall bad guy of the movie, Bart was a US Olympic gold medalist in the 1984 Olympics. Great movie for the whole family, great to see those "80s" hairspray influenced hairstyles, laughable acting at times, and the "dance fever" scene will have you rolling with laughter (though that wasn't the intention).
*Eddie Fiola is responsible for the stunt work in RAD. Bill Allen actually had to die his hair darker for the movie so that he and Eddie would look alike. There is one scene where "Cru" does a 360 out of an empty swimming pool, which was a signature Eddie Fiola move back in the day, when Eddie use to race and pull 360's at the end of his moto's. RL Osborn did some riding for the movie, he was filmed doing airs on the "TOL" ramp at Wizard Publications and he did some flatland with Eddie, at the end of movie as the credits were rolling.
