RAD Blu-ray Release

The 1980s were host to some of the most memorable sports movies of all-time, including Hoosiers, Bull Durham, Caddyshack, The Natural, The Karate Kid, Field of Dreams, and more. But the 1980s also saw the rise of popularity in extreme sports like skateboarding and BMX bike riding, and those sports were represented on the big screen too. However, most of them have only become cult favorites instead of Hollywood classics, and one of them never even got a proper home video release…until now.

RAD was released in 1986 at the height of the BMX bike craze. Directed by Hal Needham (Smokey and the Bandit, The Cannonball Run) and starring Bill Allen, the movie focuses on a small town kid named Cru Jones who is determined to win a traveling BMX bike race on a dangerous, nearly impossible course called Helltrack. It’s cheesy to the max, and features some truly impressive (and weird) stunts done on bikes. The movie has only ever been available as a bootleg, but it’s finally coming to home video this summer.
